Mine fire-related PM 2. Analyses were conducted using weighted methods of estimation to reduce the possibility of participation bias. The Department had no involvement: in the study design; in the collection, analysis and interpretation of the data; in the writing of the report; and in the decision to submit the paper for publication.
The reason for this skew in sex ratio has been previously challenged. In China, there is close to boys per girls at age five; in India, there are more than boys per girls. This effect reverses at older ages, such that from socioeconomic sex ratio definition in Traralgon-Morwell age of 30 it is in the least deprived wards where female-biased OSRs predict higher birth rates.
Birth rates plotted against OSR. The zetacrit divided into the true hematocrit gives the zeta sedimentation ratio. To our knowledge, this is the first time that the effect of the OSR on human birth rates has been shown in a national sample in a developed country at the level of small geographical areas, that is, wards.
Statistics on " Population in China ".
The chart shows that for all major causes of death, mortality is higher in boys. In addition, female-biased OSRs increased non-marital reproduction amongst females living in deprived areas as they failed to attract high-investing spouses and began to reproduce at younger ages [ 8 ].
Very skewed sex ratio of infants is suggestive of select infanticide. External link.

There was a month lag between the end of the mine fire March and the commencement of recruitment May , which may have led to some recall bias. Jillian F.
