Too Many Boys in the Caucasus

As I’ve discussed before, the sex ratio imbalance in the Caucasus is of great concern.

sex ratio

In this region that already faces instability, the 2 consequences of sex imbalance (first general population decline, second more boys than girls) could have dire consequences.

In other sex-imbalanced countries, the labor market decreases which slows economic growth. Men can’t find wives, which makes them angry (which can have consequences too) and/or they leave.
