A majority of people in south China's Hong Kong have attributed other factors rather than gender imbalance as the primary causes for the continual increase of the unmarried population, especially single women, according to a survey released by a local dating agency on November 9.

The study was conducted amongst 500 single women and men younger than 40 from August to October via online questionnaires and offline interviews.

The latest figures from the local census and statistics department show that for every 1,000 women in Hong Kong, the number of men witnessed a noticeable decrease from 1,062 in 1986 to 852 in 2016.

As many as 82 percent of female respondents and around 65 percent of men polled disagree with the assumption that the existing gender imbalance has become a leading cause for the rise of the single population.

On the contrary, failure to find an ideal partner, a preoccupation with daily work, and unattractiveness of personal appearance and character have been listed as the top three factors behind individuals' unmarried status.

About 90 percent of male respondents voiced their disagreement with the presumption held by many women that they would not cherish their chosen partners since there are more options available to them because of the sex-ratio imbalance.

Meanwhile, just like their male counterparts, single women haven't shown more concern about their unmarried status.

Nevertheless, single people are advised to expand their social circles and adjust their expectations for partners.
