Bizarre Stats

An article on the BBC News website states that: Overall, the study found that 51.5% of babies born to couples living together at the time of conception were boys, compared to 49.9% among parents who were not.

A couple of issues with this:
  • 1) Why is this interesting, I can't believe that it's statistically significant.
  • 2) Much more importantly where are these 1.4% of people who are both boys and girls? I think we need to be told this important information.
