MPRC Seminar: Why Do Parents Abort Girls? Patrilocality and Its Historical Origins

About the Speaker: Avraham Ebenstein, Visiting Assistant Professor, Center for Health and Wellbeing, Princeton University About the Talk: Recent scholarship has documented an alarming increase in the sex ratio at birth in parts of East Asia, South Asia and the Caucuses. In this paper, I argue that parents in these regions engage in sex selection because of patrilocal norms that dictate elderly coresidence between parents and sons. Sex ratios and coresidence rates are positively correlated when looking across countries, within countries across districts, and within districts across ethnic groups. {Will appear in FYI on Nov 21, 2013
