From the recent report stated by the University of Michigan epidemiologist, that the so-called Chinese Lunar Calendar technique of predicting a baby’s sex is no more accurate. Dr. Eduardo Villamor of the U-M School of Public Health and colleagues in Sweden and Boston reviewed records of 2.8 million Swedish births, between 1973 and 2006, to test the accuracy of the Chinese lunar calendar method.
However in accordance to the news that Conversion tables and Chinese birth charts are accessible on numerous websites and keep on increasing in popularity. From the fact that the Chinese lunar calendar technique is said to be based on an ancient astrology chart that was concealed in a tomb near Beijing for nearly 700 years.
“The whole thing sounds pretty nonsensical. There is no information on the rationale behind the chart and we couldn’t think of a biological basis for it. Even though we were skeptical, we tried to keep an open mind, and we just analyzed the data to see if there is anything to it. There isn’t,” said Villamor.
In accordance to the report, Villamor and his colleagues compared the Swedish birth records to the astrology charts’ predictions to Chinese charts and found out that it is 50 percent accurate. “We found that the accuracy of the Chinese lunar calendar method for the prediction of a baby’s sex leaves much to be desired,” the authors said.
