Girls born in India when the global gold price is increasing are more likely to be aborted, die in the first month of life or suffer from stunted growth, researchers have found.
A study analysed birth cohort data over a 35-year period alongside monthly variations in the global price of gold, a key element of dowries paid by a bride’s family. It found that in months when the gold price went up, fewer baby girls survived the first month of life. Twitter. Twitter.

When will men live as long as women? By 2032, say experts. In developed countries, the gender gap has long favoured women by one measure at least: life expectancy.
Throughout the past 100 years women have significantly outlived men, on whom war, heavy industry and cigarettes – among other things – have taken a heavier toll. But this gender gap is closing – and a new statistical analysis of life expectancy in England and Wales since 1950 suggests that, by the year 2032, men can expect to live as long as women, with both sexes sharing an average life expectancy of 87.5 years.
The study, led by Les Mayhew, professor of statistics at Cass Business School, calculated how long a sample of 100,000 people aged 30 would live if they experienced the average mortality rates for each ensuing year, projecting forward until the male and female life expectancy curves intersected. Discrimination kills 230,000 girls under five in India each year, study shows. Hundreds of thousands of young girls in India die every year because of “invisible discrimination”, according to research published in the Lancet Global Health.
Researchers from the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis estimate an average of 239,000 girls under five in India die each year, or 2.4 million in a decade, because of their gender. Many of the deaths were due to neglect, both within their families and from health practitioners, as well as an “invisible, routine and continued”, bias Indian girls experience in food allocation. Studies have shown that Indian girls receive less education, have poorer nutrition and get less medical attention than boys. Under natural conditions and in countries where no such gender bias exists, mortality rates for girls under five should be lower than those for boys due to a natural biological advantage.
India, in common with China, is known for having a skewed sex ratio, due to sex-selective abortions. Gender imbalances in China and India: consequences of too many men.

Image copyright Alamy Cities are often thought of as places for the young, but the reality is that many have an ageing population.
What difference does the age of a city's residents make? Over the past two decades, the average age of a UK resident has risen by two years, to 40. Within 30 years, one in four people is expected to be aged 65 and over. But the picture in cities is more complex. At 38, the average city dweller is younger. Despite this, the populations of most UK cities are growing older, raising big questions about what that means for their development, and for meeting the future needs of residents. The Centre for Cities looks at built-up urban areas with 135,000 or more people, rather than just officially recognised cities. The UK's youngest cities The UK city with the youngest population is Slough, with an average age of 33.9 and only one in 10 people aged 65 and over.

Boys to vastly outnumber girls in China for years: population official. The mainland might have just recorded its seventh consecutive year of a falling sex ratio at birth – the number of boys born for every 100 girls – but maintaining that momentum will remain extremely difficult, a senior population planning official warns.
Wang Peian, deputy director of the National Health and Family Planning Commission, gave the gloomy forecast in Beijing on Tuesday, China News Service reported. “The country has made some progress in controlling the high sex ratio at birth, but, in the view of the population development pattern, it will be more challenging to continue after the sex ratio at birth dropped to a certain extent,” Wang said.

China's gender gap: Man-made problems? - Views of the World. “In recent decades, the world has witnessed the enormous economic, social, cultural and political development of China.
As the most populous country in the world, China’s transition process influences directly one fifth of the world’s population and indirectly almost all the rest of the world. Chinese economic activities cover the whole globe, Chinese living overseas constitute the largest diaspora, and China’s political and economic influence is significant. On the other hand, China and its government face many challenges, as Chinese society as well as the environment are affected by these massive processes.” These challenges were the theme of a Conference on the Socio-Economic Transition of China at Palacký University in Olomouc (Czech Republic) where the opportunities and potential threats for China are discussed from an interdisciplinary perspective organized by the CHINET (Forging a scientific team and international networking in the field of Chinese Studies) project.
