New Study Suggest Parents of Newborn Daughters Take Fewer Risks
June 21, 2017
David Haig teamed with professors at the Department of Economics at the University of Warwick to examine the effect of learning a child’s gender on parents’ attitudes towards risky behaviors upon learning a child’s gender. The authors gathered prenatal and post-birth data from the pediatric wards of hospitals in both the United Kingdom and Ukraine, allowing for longitudinal and cross-sectional analyses of those attitudes; a first for a study of this kind. The study was presented at the 26th Society for Risk Analysis-E Conference, June 2017. Science Daily. PDF of Study.
