Women are taking over Wageningen

An economic analysis of City of Life Sciences carried out for the municipality of Wageningen predicts that the population will have grown by 6.9 percent by 2015. The number of women will increase considerably more than the number of men in Wageningen. The prediction is that there will be nearly 1,500 more women than men by that year. At present the numbers are about equal. No reason is given for the feminisation of Wageningen.
