Thanks Berk! Indeed very interesting paper. It aligns with the cultural underpinnings explanation for missing women documented by Monica Dasgupta in her large body of work. The unbalanced sex ratios is observed on higher birth order children, and is a function of the sex composition of existing children (see for example here http://www.aei.org/files/2008/09/17/20080915_DasGuptaPaper1.pdf and here http://wbro.oxfordjournals.org/content/23/2/201.full.pdf+html)
