The National Statistics Office of Georgia and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Country Office in Georgia present: Trends in the Sex Ratio at Birth in Georgia - An Overview Based on the 2014 General Population Census Data.
 
By its scale and content, the Census represents a unique source of data on the social, economic and demographic situation of the population in the country. As a result of the 2014 Census, the most current and accurate information has been collected on population size, its sex and age structure, employment, education, health, sources of income, housing and agricultural activities in Georgia. Using the Census 2014 data, the present report investigates the trends in sex imbalances at birth in Georgia and its determinants, analysing household and family formation, with a particular emphasis on fertility behavior in relation to gender. 
 
This monograph is based on work conducted in both Georgia and France. The first author is primarily responsible for the demographic analysis while the second author conducted and analyzed the survey in Kakheti. This monograph only considers territories where the 2014 census was conducted.
