Psychology Professor at Kuwait University Dr Khedr Al-Baroun said the increasing number of female citizens is normal, pointing out this is also the case in most countries around the world.

He clarified there are many reasons behind this trend, including the higher number of traffic incidents involving males compared to females and the fact that women have better health in general. He added the number of men who consume harmful substances is larger than that of women, indicating the number of women who smoke is much less than their male counterparts.
