Gender Composition by Reena Singh
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"In India, gender dimension in value and preference of children is highly pervasive. A strong desire for a son often leads to high fertility and larger family size. Daughters are accepted reluctantly and considered a liability for the family. In the transition from large to small family and the desire for a 'balanced family', the sex composition of the children is influenced by a large set of factors. This study focuses on various aspects of families with different sizes and compositions of children from the socio-demographic perspective. It deals with the reproductive experiences of the couples and the strategies adopted to achieve a given size and composition of children. Besides, a comparison of inter-birth interval has been made between the children of same sex and different sex, based on sex, parity and order of birth. Lastly, an attempt is made to study the self-perception of the status of women and also by other members of the family across different family compositions."
