Dear colleagues,

I've written a paper about sources of variation in human sex ratio, using DHS data. See attached .pdf file.
Major finding is that sex of a child depends (statistically, but perhaps also causally) on sexes of preceding siblings.

Please let me know what do you think about the analysis.

Part of this large sample was already analyzed by M.Garenne in 2009 (only Sub-Saharan Africa).
