Notes: This table estimates a the evolution of gender inequality in mortality over the period from 1982 to 1993, using a created panel based on children of different ages. The coefficient are from a probit model. The dependent variable is an indicator for whether the child died between 18 months and five years, conditional on having reached 18 months. The regression is limited to children born five to ten years before the survey. The two columns divide the sample by ideal gender ratio reported, with Column 1 including only individuals that report their ideal gender ratio is neutral or female-biased and Column 2 including those who report their ideal gender ratio is male-biased. Other controls: maternal age, maternal education, family income, child age (quadratic), birth order, Hindu and number of older brothers and number of older sisters. Full regressions with all controls reported are in Appendix Table W.1.6 (on author’s website).
