    Are there more men or women on HubPages?

    My guess is that there are more women. What do you think? How can we find out?

    In my own experience there are more men in the HubPages which does not mean that women are back in their own contributions.

    I see a pretty good blend, but I do think women may slightly outnumber men on here.

    I tend to believe there are more women, but this just may vary based on the category of the hubs that I'm most often exposed to. From what I've seen, some of the most popular hubs are based in realms that are traditionally considered feminine: relationships, cooking, fashion, decorating, education. With that said, I've seen plenty of men on here, and I don't imagine the balance is much more than 60/40 or so in favor of women. Of course, 72% of statistics are made up...

    I think there are more men...but the women in general are more active in forums and questions so they are move visible..

    I once read somewhere that there were more females than males.

    I have seen more women here on Hubpages.

    I don't know the exact statistics, neither do I know any precise method to find out this.

    However, I do believe that there are more women (by a distance) than men on Hubpages.

    It is hard to say. Almost everyone is in costume at this masquerade flea market.

    I would say there are more women than man on here.  I could be wrong though.

    There are more people than either men or women.

    Quantcast measures slightly more women than men:
    http://www.quantcast.com/hubpages.com

    Alexa seems to agree with Quantcast, although it puts the ratio a little more towards the "women" side of the equation:
    http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/hubpages.com#

    I suspect their figures are estimates made by measuring audience behavior on the whole site, but they are both well-respected industry sites used by businesses to determine marketing and seo strategies, so I assume they're fairly on-target.

    (Quantcast gathers a lot of info from 1x1 pixel images embedded on every page of Hubpages and other websites that have volunteered to host the image in exchange for the user data collected. Whenever that image is loaded, Quantcast can pick up basic browser info and IP numbers about that browsing session and build up a composite picture of user behavior. I'm not sure how Alexa gets its data, but "alexa rating" is a standard rating for websites.)
