We will count the number of it $\< 2^{11}=2048$ (Error compiling LaTeX. ! Undefined control sequence.) instead of $2003$ (In other words, the length of the base-2 representation is at most $11$. If there are even digits, $2n$, then the leftmost digit is $1$, the rest, $2n-1$, has odd number of digits. In order for the base-2 representation to have more $1$'s, we will need more $1$ in the remaining $2n-1$ than $0$'s. Using symmetry, this is equal to $\frac{2^9+2^7+..+2^1}{2}$ Using similar argument where there are odd amount of digits. The remaining even amount of digit must contains the number of $1$'s at least as the number of $0$'s. So it's equal to $\frac{\binom{10}{5}+2^{10}+\binom{8}{4}+2^8+\binom{6}{3}+2^6+...+\binom{0}{0}+2^0}{2}$ Summing both cases, we have $\frac{2^0+2^1+..+2^{10}+\binom{0}{0}+..+\binom{10}{5}}{2} = 1199$. There are $44$ numbers between $2004$ and $2047$ inclusive that satisfy it. So the answer is $1199-44=1\boxed{155}$
