Abstract

We analysed the phenomenon of ‘son preference’ that is prevalent in the Indian society, through a probability model for the number of female childbirths among females of Indian society. In [1], a probability model for the number of female childbirths was applied to an observed set of data taken from NFHS-III (2005-06) for the seven North-East states of India. Some problem regarding the application of the model to the data set is found and the proper solution is suggested. The modified approach is illustrated to observed data set taken from NFHS-III(2005-06) for few states of India of different regions.
