It is estimated that SRB reference levels are significantly different from the commonly assumed historical norm of 1.05 for most regions, and Bayesian methods for SRB estimation for all countries from 1950 to 2017 are developed.
National and regional under-5 mortality rate by economic status for low-income and middle-income countries: a systematic assessment
Global estimation and scenario-based projections of sex ratio at birth and missing female births using a Bayesian hierarchical time series mixture model
The sex ratio at birth (SRB) is defined as the ratio of male to female live births. The SRB imbalance in parts of the world over the past several decades is a direct consequence of sex-selective…
Probabilistic projection of the sex ratio at birth and missing female births by State and Union Territory in India
A Bayesian hierarchical time series model is implemented to project the sex ratio at birth across India by state from 2017 to 2030, taking into account two state-specific factors that contribute to sex-selective abortion in India, resulting in sex imbalances at birth.
How Informative are Vital Registration Data for Estimating Maternal Mortality? A Bayesian Analysis of WHO Adjustment Data and Parameters
Monitoring maternal mortality is challenging due to fragmented data of varying quality. The maternal mortality estimates published by the WHO in 2012 included data adjustment parameters to account…
Levels and trends in the sex ratio at birth and missing female births for 29 states and union territories in India 1990–2016: A Bayesian modeling study
The sex ratio at birth (SRB) has risen in India and reaches well beyond the levels under normal circumstances since the 1970s. The lasting imbalanced SRB has resulted in much more males than females…

This paper presents a meta-analysis of population estimates and projections for Singapore over the period of 1991 to 2002 and shows trends in mortality, morbidity and disease burden over that period.
Gender dierences in infant and child mortality: Estimation and identication of countries with outlying levels or trends
A Bayesian model is presented to estimate the sex ratio of under-five mortality for all countries and the relative difference between national sex ratios and expected sex ratios based on the global relation between mortality and sex ratios.
