In brief: 2X more in women

In general, women experience urinary incontinence about twice as often as men.
In women, urinary in continence is often caused by damage to the pelvic nerves and musches associated with childbirth. In men it is often related to prostate disease and its treatments. Incidence increases with age in both sexes.
