One Child Policy: remarks...

"In any ordinary human population, there is a predictable regularity to the number of baby boys and girls born. Depending on the society and circumstances, that "sex ratio at birth" (SRB)—or baby boys per 100 baby girls—typically ranges between 103 and 106. Since the advent China's One Child Policy, however, these biological norms have been smashed and the country's gender balance has headed off in an eerie and utterly unfamiliar direction."
