Description

The male/female ratio represents the proportion between the number of males and the number of females within a specific region. In South Asian countries, there exists a general preference for males over females. This has resulted in a skewed male/female ratio (greater than 1) for several years. Here, the author examines data regarding the male/female ratio in Nepal. Data on the number of births and deaths (segregated by sex) will be utilized to provide evidence for the obtained ratio. Finally, data regarding the residence of the 2 sexes in urban and rural settings will be used to explain differences of the ratio in the context of socioeconomic status. Data on employment of the 2 sexes in blue-collar and white-collar occupations will also be used to examine the differences as it pertains to socioeconomic status. This research aims to examine trends that may appear between the male/female ratio and the socioeconomic status indicators mentioned. Potential causative agents may be identified, depending on the strength of the trends observed.
