List of Indian States on the Basis of Sex Ratio

Answer Verified Verified

Number of females per thousand males is called the sex ratio. It is one of the most significant social indicators to gauge the equality between the males and females at a given point of time at a given place. In a developing country like India, number of women has always been less as compared to men. But, in the last census of the country there is a slight improvement in the data. The sex ratio in India has increased 10 points in census 2011 as compared to census of 2001. According to census 2011, the sex ratio in India is 943 per 1000 males.
