  • 8. Child Sex Ratio
    • Child sex ratio, i.e., sex ratio in the age group 0 to 6 years is a powerful indicator to examine the SOCIAL RESPONSE and ATTITUDE towards the GIRL CHILD in recent past.
    • The presentation of data on child sex ratio has shown a grim picture of the status of girl child in some parts of the country as per the Census of India 2011.

  • 10. Child Sex Ratio Decline in child ratio from 962 in 1981 to 914 in 2011 has somewhat activated to political, legal and administrative set up of the country. However the Census findings should now be converted into a tangible action plan to help the cause of the girl child.

  • 11. Analysis of Census Data
    • 'It is clear that the sex ratio in the age group 0-6 has decreased at a much faster pace than the overall sex ratio of the country after 1981.
    • decreasing sex ratio in this child population perhaps has a cascading effect on the population over a period of time leading to diminishing sex ratio in the country.

  • 18. In Result
    • One thing is clear- the imbalance that has set at the early age-group is difficult to be removed and would remain to haunt the population for a long time to come.
    • To say the least, demographically the sex ratio of 927 of the population in the age-group 0-6 does not augur well for the future of the country specially girl child.
    • Implications resulting from Census Data
  • 19. What we can DO
    • Can we wait for the next census in 2021 to tell whether the sex ratio at birth have improved or further deteriorated ?
