I doubt the authenticity of this male/female ratio data. Something has gone wrong some where. If there are monks, there are nuns too. Of late most of the monks are Himalayan Buddhists and not Tibetan Diaspora.

In many of the Tibetan schools, girls students are more by 65% than boys-a stark contrast !

The huge difference in male/female ratio is most probably due mainly to the large numbers of monks in our society.

If you calculate the many Tibetans who never take part in surveys, my guess is that the exile population is closer to 200,000. This also explains the discrepancy in male and female numbers since many women didn't take part in the survey and large numbers of monks did because it was easy to do in the institutions.
I also think that there are 8 to 9 million Tibetans inside Tibet.

Why is there such a huge discrepancy between the sexes? Tibetan society doesn't discriminate between male and female child at birth like the Chinese Society or the Indian society and moreover, we have a huge population of monks. One aspect I could figure is the new arrivals who must be overwhelmingly males to obvious reasons. Other than that, I am at loss to understand this ratio. Hopefully, someone can take a look at this and find the reasons as I think that could be also affecting the birth rate which is alarming.
