The statistic data is from 3051 Chinese children born in the Northeast regions of China during 2006 to 2008.

Review Chinese Baby Gender Predictor Chart
The chart below is the Chinese Baby Gender Predictor Chart. The age in the chart is woman's Chinese age at conception. The month in the chart is the month of the conception. Because the chart is from Ching Dynasty, people think the month should be the Chinese Lunar Month. For the prediction, blue is for boy and pink is for girl.
|Age||Woman's Conception Chinese Lunar Month|
We are interested the association between conception month and the probability to have baby boy. Therefore, we sum up the boy counts for each month.
|Lunar Month||Near Zodiac||Proximity Month||Boy Counts|
Now we can see that January, February, March, April and September have higher boy counts. The Chinese I-Ching has a theory to support this prediction. This probably is something to do with Chinese I-Ching Hexagrams. I-Ching states the natural phenomena of our universe, and then applies it on people, family and the nation relationships. The nature rule of the universe (Dao) is Yin and Yang. I-Ching uses the symbol of broken bar as Yin and the solid bar as Yang. Yin is female or cold. Yang is male or hot. One trigram has 3 bars and one hexagram has 6 bars. Yin-Yang and Hexagram can apply on the months. Each month has its own hexagram. December has the first Yang growing from the ground. January has two Yangs on the ground. February has three Yangs on the ground. March has four Yang bars and April has five Yang bars. Full six Yangs are in May. In June, Yang completely dies and Yin is born.
