Human sex ratio The human sex ratio at birth can vary for natural reasons as well as from sex-selective abortion. In many nations abortion is legal see above map, dark blue.
Sex-selective abortion affects the human sex ratio —the relative number of males to females in a given age group. This assumption is controversial, and a subject of continuing scientific studies.
High or low human sex ratio implies sex-selective abortion[ edit ] One school of scholars suggest that any birth sex ratio of boys to girls that is outside of the normal range, necessarily implies sex-selective abortion.
These scholars  claim that both the sex ratio at birth and the population sex ratio are remarkably constant in human populations.
Significant deviations in birth sex ratios from the normal range can only be explained by manipulation, that is sex-selective abortion. Sen pointed to research that had shown that if men and women receive similar nutritional and medical attention and good health care then females have better survival rates, and it is the male which is the genetically fragile sex.
High or low human sex ratio may be natural[ edit ] Other scholars question whether birth sex ratio outside can be due to natural reasons. William James and others   suggest that conventional assumptions have been: James cautions that available scientific evidence stands against the above assumptions and conclusions.
He reports that there is an excess of males at birth in almost all human populations, and the natural sex ratio at birth is usually between and However the ratio may deviate significantly from this range for natural reasons such as early marriage and fertility, teenage mothers, average maternal age at birth, paternal age, age gap between father and mother, late births, ethnicity, social and economic stress, warfare, environmental and hormonal effects.
James' hypothesis is supported by historical birth sex ratio data before technologies for ultrasonographic sex-screening were discovered and commercialized in the s and s, as well by reverse abnormal sex ratios currently observed in Africa.
