Spatio-Temporal Analysis of Child Sex Ratio (CSR) in Maharashtra

Dr. Prakash N. Salve


Abstract: The preen study investigated the spatio-temporal distribution of CSR in Maharashtra state. The study reveals that all 35 districts have recorded a negative sex ratio which is an alarming bell for the state. The child sex ratio (CSR) of Maharashtra went down from 946 females per 1000 males in 1991 to 894 females per 1000 males in 2011. About 22 districts were recorded the below national average (914 female per 1000 males) child sex ratio. The difference in CSR from 1991 to 2011 was recorded highly negative in the districts of Bid-132, Ahmednagar-97, Kolhapur-86, Jalgaon-83, Jalna-81, Osmanabad-80, Aurangabad-75, Parbhani-72, Hingoli-71, Nashik-64, Pune-60, Dhule-59, Latur-58, Sangli-57, Nanded and Solapur-52. The child sex ratio in these 22 districts of the state is worse. Gender discrimination, female infanticide, and son preference are the important factor responsible for the low CSR, hence it is an urgent need to take action to enhance the CSR in these districts.
