A Study of the Urban-Rural Literacy Pattern and its Differentials in Rajasthan: A District Level Analysis

Dr. Shahid Imam


Abstract: The present research paper attempts to analyse the trends of urban-rural literacy rate and their differential both in Rajasthan and India as a whole from 1951 to 2011. Purpose of this research paper is also to analyse the regional pattern of literacy rate at district level in Rajasthan on the basis of census report of 2011. This research paper also studies the spatial pattern of urban-rural differential in literacy rate at district level and its relationship with twenty four other independent variables to assess the level of development. The urban rural differential in literacy rate is found to be narrowing down from 1951 to 2011 in the state of Rajasthan. At district level it has been observed that the western and southern districts indicate very high urban rural differential index, because of less developed economic and social conditions. Whereas, the urban rural differential indices have been found to be low in northern and eastern part of the state. Study reveals that out of twenty four variables, eleven are significant at 99% level of confidence in their relationship with urban rural differential index, whereas, other five variables are significantly correlated at 95% level of confidence.
