No, but apparently within the 85-and-older set, it is.

Put another way - A quick google search indicates that in 2019, there were 6.6 million 85+ in the USA. source. The number is probably a bit different now, but let's go with it.

So if 67% (two thirds) were female then 33% (one third) were male that's 4.4 million vs 2.2 million. There exist approximately two 85+ grannies for every one 85+ old man.
