China's Boy Surplus

Chinese Bias for Baby Boys Creates a Gap of 32 Million - NY Times.

This has been written about before, and the worry that a surplus of males will make China more belligerent and socially unstable. What I find interesting is it's a Chinese source that published the report. The ratio is 120 boys to 100 girls in 2005, which has been caused by the 1 child policy and cheap sonagrams. Korea has a similar problem due to a culture preference for boys.
