New Article by Hao Dong, James Lee, and Co-authors Published in Evolution and Human Biology

Hao Dong and James Lee, along with their co-authors Satomi Kurosu, Matteo Manfredini, and Wenshan Yang, published their article “Kin and birth order effects on male child mortality: three East Asian populations, 1716–1945” in the March 2017 issue of Evolution and Human Biology.  Using data from several historical East Asian populations, including Taiwan, the CMGPD-LN dataset for northeast China, and Japan, they examine how family context and birth order shape mortality chances in these specific populations and discuss the implications for our understanding of human behavior overall.
