I want to understand why the following structure is correct :

In Town Y, three times as many people are left-handed as are left-handed in Town X, three times as many people are tall as are tall in Town X, three times as many people are both as are both in Town X, but no one is neither.

would it be wrong if writen that way :

In Town Y, three times as many people are left-handed as there are left-handed in Town X, three times as many people are tall as there are tall in Town X, three times as many people are both as there are both in Town X, but no one is neither.

If you want to write it like how you mentioned above then you should use the following form:
In Town Y, there are three times as many left-handed people as there are in Town X, three times as many tall people as there are in Town X...
