Summary
This report is the product of a UN Population Division study of the sex differentials in infant, child, and under-five mortality and the specific mechanisms that may lead to excess female mortality in childhood. It consists of 10 chapters "that explore a broad range of mechanisms, ranging from the biological to the social and economic, that influence sex differentials in childhood mortality. The mechanisms considered affect mortality differentials either directly, as in the case of the nutritional status of boys and girls or the differential use of health care by sex of child, or indirectly, as in the case of maternal education and decisions regarding the intra-household allocation of resources. The study also provides a historical account of the evolution of the sex differentials in childhood mortality in today's developed countries during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Another major contribution is its measurement and analysis of the levels and trends of infant, child and under-five mortality for boys and girls during the 1970s and 1980s. Such analysis allows the identification of the countries and regions in which girls have a survival disadvantage compared to boys, and permits an objective assessment of the magnitude and extent of excess female mortality in childhood."
