There are probably many reasons as to why there are variations in the probability of male and female conception ratios. One variation includes sex-selective abortion which is thought to significantly skew the naturally occurring ratios in some populations, more specifically, in the Chinese culture where male children are more valued than female children.;Sex-selective abortion has become an issue in Southern and Eastern Asian countries, where sex-selective abortions have caused an increase in the imbalances between sex ratios of various Asian countries. Studies have estimated that sex-selective abortions have increased the ratio of males to females from the natural average of 105-106 males per 100 females to 113 males per 100 females in both South Korea and China, 110 males per 100 females in Taiwan and 107 males per 100 females among Chinese populations living in Singapore and parts of Malaysia.
