scenario-based projection

Global estimation and scenario-based projections of sex ratio at birth and missing female births using a Bayesian hierarchical time series mixture model

Skewed levels of the sex ratio at birth (SRB) due to sex-selective abortions have been observed in several countries since the 1970s. They will lead to long-term sex imbalances in more than a third of the world's population with yet unknown social …

Web Appendix Projecting sex imbalances at birth at global, regional, and national levels from 2018 to 2100: scenario-based Bayesian probabilistic projections of the sex ratio at birth and missing female births

This web appendix is for Projecting sex imbalances at birth at global, regional, and national levels from 2018 to 2100: scenario-based Bayesian probabilistic projections of the sex ratio at birth and missing female births.

Estimating and Projecting Disparities in Pre- and Post-natal Survival using Bayesian Methods

It is crucial to monitor demographic and global health indicators accurately in order to optimize resource allocation. This is especially so in developing countries where the improvement of these health indicators is most needed. However, estimating …

Scenario-Based Bayesian Probabilistic Projections of the Sex Ratio at Birth and Missing Female Births

We describe a method for probabilistic scenario-based projection of the sex ratio at birth (SRB; ratio of male to female live births) for all countries, with a focus on SRB imbalance due to sex-selective abortion till 2100.

Global estimation and scenario-based projections of sex ratio at birth and missing female births using a Bayesian hierarchical time series mixture model

The sex ratio at birth (SRB) is defined as the ratio of male to female live births. The SRB imbalance in parts of the world over the past several decades is a direct consequence of sex-selective abortion, driven by the co-existence of son preference, …
