The influx of young single males flowing into sparsely populated boom communities for work results in men greatly outnumbering women. Some of these newcomers contribute to increased levels of antisocial behavior and crime, including the victimization of women. Women report being hounded with unwanted male attention, and a number of studies have shown that their rates of victimization increase after the start of a boom. Women from vulnerable populations, such as Native Americans, members of visible minority groups, and the poor, may be more at risk of victimization, and some of these women disappear and are never heard from again. In addition to being at a greater risk of victimization, many women are excluded from the benefits of a boom, are relegated to the poorly paying jobs, and find themselves engaging in part-time sex work and in precarious living conditions.
