Abstract: This research examines the relationship between county-level sex ratios for African Americans and births to unmarried African American women. Compiling data from a variety of different sources, the analysis considers whether low sex ratios for blacks are associated with out-of-wedlock fertility and explores the type of environment in which this association is strongest. I find a negative relationship between male-to-female sex ratios and nonmarital fertility for blacks, but only in highly-segregated urban counties. The results suggest that a county’s level of segregation and urban/rural classification are important factors in the association between sex ratios and nonmarital fertility for African Americans.

"Students' Transition from Proto-Ratio to Ratio and Proportional Reasoning Through Co-Splitting and Equipartitioning" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, Radisson Hotel, Kalamazoo, MI, Nov 01, 2012 Online <PDF>. 2019-04-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p571958_index.html>

Abstract: This paper presents preliminary findings on the strategies used by third-grade students while working with the topic of covariation, within equipartitioning, and how students develop an understanding of the concept based on prior learning experiences. The range of these strategies are discussed as to how they pertain to a movement from proto-ratio reasoning to more fluent and sophisticated ratio and proportional reasoning, eliciting implications for equipartitioning as a strong foundation on which to create such a transformative move in thinking.

Abstract: The phi-ratio test is a generalization of a special case of the m-th ratio tests that appeared in the American Mathematical Monthly, volume 115, Number 6, June-July 2008. The m-th ratio tests are new family of convergence tests for series. These tests are stronger than the ordinary ratio test. They succeed in testing many series for which the ordinary ratio test fails. For series with decreasing n-th terms, the m-th and phi-ratio tests have simple statements.

Abstract: In China today, there are 20 to 30 million excessive men. Such extreme imbalanced sex ratio has serious social consequences. The severe shortage of women, especially for age groups under 30, is mainly due to the implementation of the one-child family planning policy in 1979. Strong resistance from rural population led to widespread sex-selective practices such as abortion of female fetuses. 30 years later, an estimate of 30 to 40 million young men will not be able to find a wife by the next decade. This trend is predicted to worsen, peaking around year of 2020. In a patriarchal society where women are in extreme short supply, violence against women and girls is likely to rise. This paper will look at rape, violence and sexual violence against women and girls, and domestic violence against women as the result of imbalanced sex ratios in China.
