What is sex ratio?

We commonly think that there is a well-maintained equilibrium in the number of males and females on this earth. There is a remarkable imbalance in male and female population in many parts of the world. This is technically known as sex ratio i.e., the number of females in every thousand males. Sex ratio at birth, migration, mortality rate etc. can cause sex differentials in the population of a given place. As per the Census 2011, India has got an overall sex ratio of 940 females per 1000 males.

Child sex ratio in India

Indian Census operations even calculated the child sex ratio. Child sex ratio means the number of girl children within the age group of 0 to 6 yrs per 1000 boys of the same age. This data is again classified in urban child sex ratio and rural child sex ratio for the purpose of overall development of the place along with the study of demographic tendency of young people, their future plans and a girl child's status.
