Taiwan’s baby imbalance

Taiwan’s baby imbalance

At the beginning of June, 2016, Taiwan’s national health administration made public Taiwan’s “baby imbalance” figures for 2015.  They show that in Taiwan, the ratio of male to female newborn babies was 1.083:1, or 108.3 newborn baby boys to 100 newborn baby girls.

A doctor says that Taiwan’s low birthrate and the higher statistical probability that a first born is more likely to be a male than a female baby are reasons that contribute to this imbalance.
