Gender shortfall ...

„The gender shortfall is believed to take place through sex-selective abortion, female infanticide or the unequal allocation of health care and food towards males. […] China has 122 boys aged 0-4 for every 100 girls. […] Ratios in excess of the upper range of birth norms are also observed in the Republic of Korea, Hong Kong (China) and India.“
