I was asked by my friends at a great Women’s Organizations about the demographics in some of the top digital platforms targeting a specific age group and gender on:

  • FB
  • Insta
  • Tiktok
  • Youtube
  • Twitter.

Unfortunately, nobody’s built out my “VisiCalc” idea where you take the audiences of all the different platforms and you answer a question like this with just a few selections.

In order to solve this larger problem of not knowing where you can advertise, I’ve been building a document titled:

Largest Digital Marketing Channels

to fill the void for now.

Here’s a snapshot of all that’s available (without app usage data) of the

Top 12 digital properties:

However, they wanted more specific data.   In particular, they was asking for the 30-50 yo demographic and women in particular.

I knew the FB data existed readily along with YouTube potentially and maybe Pinterest.   The rest, I’m going to have to do a bit of digging. So, I’m going to share:

FB Women Audiences (30-50 yo) in Top Cities

Facebook Insights has most of this data available for public consumption.   So, I went into it to see what I could extract.   I’ll explain the steps I took so you can create the data sets yourselves.

I altered the age ranged to 30-50 and selected “Women.”   I got 40-45 million for the United States. When trying to add to the “Location,” we got a few different sets of numbers for the top cities selected. For example, when you clicked on the Location tab after trying to enter the “Location” field on the left when creating audiences, the numbers reverted to different figures.   Nevertheless, these seem to be the “rough estimates” for each of the larger demos for each of the top cities.**

  • United States: 40-45 million
  • New York: 1-1.5 mill*
  • Los Angeles: 700-800k*
  • San Francisco: 150-200k*
  • Miami: 200-250k*
  • Chicago: 500-600k*
  • Seattle: 150-200k*
  • Dallas: 250-300k*
  • Houston: 500-600k*
  • San Jose: 150-200k*
  • San Diego: 200-250k*
  • Philadelphia: 250-300k*
  • Austin: 200-250k*
  • Washington: 150-200k*
  • Boston: 100-150k*
  • Portland: 100-150k*

Quora Female Audience Data

43/57  female-to-male ratio

  • As of January 2019, Quora’s user base had a  43/57 female to male ratio, although it’s unclear why males prefer the platform. A  QuickSprout  article found that gender usage varies depending on the social media tool. If you’re targeting females, they tend to prefer Facebook for the personal connections it provides, whereas males tend to focus their time on tools that offer information and advice.
