I don’t know what CDC’s motivation is; perhaps to promote the man bad, woman good myth. Since there are 7% more boys born, the mean number of sexual male/female partner is 7% greater for women than men. It is impossible to be otherwise. CDC uses median because they know that most people read median as average and in most cases is very close. And, because they know that every mathematician and engineer that thought about it would know they were lying.
