Birth Order has been described as a variable with a complex relationship to child and adult outcomes.
A review of the medical literature over the past 5 years identified 20 studies that investigated the relationship between Birth Order and a health outcome.
Only one of the studies established a relationship between Birth Order and a health outcome: third and fourth-born children have a higher incidence of accidents that result in hospitalization.
The other demonstrated relationships are each explained by intervening variables or methodological limitations.
