Economic Analyses on the Gender Selection of the Traditional Parents in China
This study is encouraged to apply the methodology of economics to investigate the issue of gender selection of the traditional parents in China, which has been widely noted from the perspective of sociology. It is firstly argued that traditional society of China is a good object for economic analyses owing to its long‐run stability. Secondly,it is obviously seen that traditional parents are highly rational in gender selection owing to the corresponding economic and social environments around them. Hence, economics will play a crucial role in the analyses of gender selection. We have established two simple mathematical models corresponding to two different cases to derive some propositions about the gender selection of the rational parents.
