According to the UNHCR, 58 per cent of the more than 1 million migrants and refugees who arrived in Europe last year were adult men, 17 per cent were women, and the remainder were children.
Professor Valerie Hudson, a Texas A&M University professor, said gender imbalances could cause serious problems in the community.
She said societies where men outnumbered women were more susceptible to higher levels of violence, insurgence and mistreatment of women.
Sweden is of particular interest to Professor Hudson, because it has the second-highest number of asylum applications in Europe, relative to its population.
"I looked specifically at the figures that Sweden had provided on its migrants — 71 per cent of whom are male," she said.
"And then in the age group 16 to 17 years old, which is what I focused on, over 90 per cent are male."
What we have found uniformly [in societies where men outnumber women] is a rise in crime, particularly violent crime, property crime, crime against women.

Professor Hudson estimated there were about 123 boys for every 100 girls in Sweden.
Australia has agreed to resettle 12,000 people displaced by the conflict in Syria and Iraq.
A spokesman for Immigration Minister Peter Dutton told the ABC so far 26 people had arrived in Australia as part of that humanitarian intake.
"Gender ratios are not a criterion the department considers when assessing visa applications," the spokesman said in a statement.
The spokesman said Australia would give priority to people it assessed as most vulnerable — "women, children and families with the least prospect of ever returning safely to their homes".

Now we are expected to accept that its more probably just a gender issue since there are so many young men, upeards or more than 71%...so I guess Mr. Obama and the Media have been lying to us? Is that the conclusion I should arrive to? If thats the case does that mean they are definitely being overly loose with their vetting since in all actuality IT IS draft aged ME men that are being shipped all over the world?
