Estonia is known for having the world's lowest ratio of men to women, and its capital outdoes the national average, according to data published in the freshly-released Tallinn statistical yearbook.

As of January 1, Tallinn was home to 230,154 women and just 185,990 men. That puts the sex ratio at just under 0.81. The national average is 0.84, according to the 2012 World Factbook - the lowest number for any country with the possible exception of some Pacific atolls and micro-states (Only Latvia and Lithuania are even close.)

Mustamäe, the second-largest district of Tallinn by population with 64,237 people, had a particularly low ratio, 0.75.

Lasnamäe was the most populous district, with 116,273 people, and the smallest is Pirita, home to around 16,600.
