Is the word 'every' necessary? Is there any difference if it is omitted In 1992, there was one woman to every seven men. But by 2012...

This is mathematical. One woman to every seven men. One woman:seven men. 1:7 ratio of women to men.

Yes there is - but I get what you mean. It's a bit lie 'I go swimming once every 3 days', not 'I go swimming once 3 days'. If you said 'there was one woman to seven men' it kind of makes sense but the implication, or connotation, is not statistical. You might think it's real - there are women and men being put together or something! In short - you need every! Hope it makes some sense! Tutor Zowee :)
