Level of Female Literacy and Its Differentials in Haryana: A Lowest Sex Ratio State of India

Ravinder Jangra, S. P. Kaushik


Abstract: The study reveals the tehsil-wise trend of female literacy rate in Haryana because it is presumed that the female literates can easily understand the consequences of descending sex ratio. So, the purpose of the paper is to describe and interpret the regional aspects of the urban-rural differentials in female literacy during 1991, 2001 and 2011. It is primarily based on census data. Data is processed with simple statistical techniques such as percentage and multiple correlations. Attempt has been made to identify the correlates of female literacy in an agro-based economy. It is noted that the total female literacy rate has increased significantly during the study period. However, there are wide gaps in urban-rural female literacy. Comparatively, the increase is more remarkable in rural areas and gap is narrowing down.


Keywords: Level of Female Literacy, Urban-Rural Literacy and Differential Index, Correlation Matrix
