Abstract:   (824 Views)
In human populations, sex ratio at birth (ratio of males to females x 100) is about 104-106, which affect by several factors. It has been reported that "sex preference" is the main factor for changing in sex ratio in some countries. There are some evidences in folklore of Hormozgan province (Iran) that revealed a strong negative attitude against females. The main aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between the negative attitude about females and reporting sex ratio at birth in folktales of Hormozgan province. In the study the sex ratio at birth of offspring in folktales of Hormozgan province was compared with the actual sex ratio. The sex ratios in folktales and live births were estimated 108.7 and 105.0, respectively. There was no statistical significant difference between these two rations (Z=0.206, P=0.837). The sex ratio among the offspring of Kings and general population in folktales were estimated 103.1 and 113.5, respectively, which showed no significant difference (Z=0.285, P=0.775). Therefore, there is no evidence for association between sex preference and reported gender of offspring at birth in folktales.
