Abstract:

Although the reported gender imbalance, due to the Single Child Policy (1979-2015) has caused international alarm, this study finds that the number of ""missing girls"" may not be as pronounced as previous studies suggest due to wide spread local underreporting of births from the 1980s to early 2000s. In Local Leaders, Families, and the ""Missing Girls"" in Rural China, John James Kennedy and Yaojiang Shi focus on village-level implementation of the one-child policy and how shocking the level of mutual-noncompliance between officials and rural families has been.
