Technical Stuff

In case of multiple names they are checked as one name, since order of the names is also important. Gender of a name is derived from database by sampling data.

  • If name appears more than 50 times and 90-97% of persons with this name have male gender and more than 2% have female gender then gender probably is male
  • If name appears more than 50 times and 70-90% of persons with this name have male gender and less than 2% have female gender then gender probably is male
  • If name appears less than 50 times and 90-100% of persons with this name have male gender then gender probably is male
  • If name appears less than 50 times and 70-90% of persons with this name have male gender and less than 10% have female gender then gender probably is male
  • If name is classified as bisexual or unsure and consists of multiple name, then if all names are definitely male/female, then gender is probably male/female.

So with entering missing names and correcting false genders, quality of finding wrong gender increases.
