Male neonatal mortality in Western Australia has improved more than that for females since 1973. No significant differences in mortality now exist between the sexes. Similar changes have been observed in the sex ratios for cerebral palsy. Some of these changes appear to be due to selective changes in the birthweight distribution of live male births. There has also been a selective improvement in male neonatal mortality in low birthweight infants. © 1981.
