BBC: Why does Sweden have more boys than girls?

From the BBC:
There is something odd going on with the ratio between boys and girls in Sweden. The latest estimates suggest there are 123 boys for every 100 girls among 16 and 17-year-olds. 
That's an even greater imbalance than in the same age group in China. 
The natural "sex ratio at birth" is 105 boys for every 100 girls, according to the World Health Organization - and official statistics show that in 2014, there were 108 boys for every 100 girls among Sweden's 16 and 17-year-olds. 
But the country now has 123 boys for every 100 girls in this age group, according to Valerie Hudson of Texas A&M University. If this is correct, it will be quite something. 
China's one child policy and a preference for sons led some couples to opt for sexually selective abortions, contributing to a sex ratio there of 117 boys for every 100 girls aged 16 and 17.
I guess the solution to this problem is for Swedish boys to declare themselves to be girls.

Transgenderism will save Europe ...

Sounds like voluntary sex selective abortions.

What did you think I am?

My Mother is English born and bred. My father was American-born, and of English and Jewish heritage, though not raised Jewish.

That 123 figure was 106 until last year. The massive influx of 16-25 male "refugees"
last year caused the jump.

Oh, is that it?

Ok. Now it makes sense.
