Related Document
Frame of Image b i r t h throughout Korean culture. According to the change of sex ratio at birth for the past thirty years, the figure was the lowest 105.3 in 1980 and the highest 116.5 in 1990. The reason why there was a disparity of sex ratio at birth in 1980 and 1990 is revealed when this paper focuses on sex ratio at birth by birth order. There was no explicit difference of sex ratio at birth by birth order in 1980 that showed the lowest sex ratio at birth: the sex ratio at birth among the first children, second children, third children, and fourth children w e r e 106.0, 106.5, 106.9, and 110.2 respectively. However, there was a distinctive difference of sex ratio at birth by birth order in 1990 that presented the highest sex ratio at birth: the sex ratio at birth among the first, second, third, and fourth children were 108.5,

117.0, 188.8, 209.2 respectively. This result s e e m s to be influenced by the increase of i n d u c e d abortion through medical surgery rather than simply by a higher preference of s o n in childbirth compared to other times. There had been a gradual decline of sex ratio at birth since 1990 and the figure in 2007 was 106.1. In case of the sex ratio at birth among t h e third and fourth children in 2007, the figures were 115.4 and 119.4 respectively. <Table 1> Sex Ratio at Birth by Birth Order
