This chapter examines regional patterns of sex ratios for children aged 0 to 4 using county-level data collected by the 2000 census. Great regional disparities in sex ratios were observed among young children. Nearly half of China's population now lives in areas where the sex ratio of children aged 0 to 4 is above 120 boys per 100 girls. Rising sex ratios has already become a serious social problem. Some explanations are offered for regional variations in the sex ratios of young children.

Keywords:   child sex ratio, spatial analysis, regional variation
