According to the CIA, as of 2018 there were an estimated 981,129,427 boys ages 0 to 14 living in the world. This number stems from an estimated total population of  7,503,828,180. You might think that the number of males in the world is equal to the number of females. Research suggests otherwise. A report by the BBC states that since record-keeping began in 1838, there have been more males than females born every year. In fact, the birth ratio is 107 boys for every 100 girls.
