Unveiling the Changing Sex Ratio Trends in Karnataka, India: A Spatial Analysis

Dr. Suresh L. Chitragar [6]


Abstract: This paper investigates the shifting trends and spatial patterns of the sex ratio among the districts of Karnataka state, India, encompassing both rural and urban areas. The sex ratio, a crucial indicator of population composition and women?s status in society, serves as a key index for assessing regional development. The study reveals the impact of underlying socio - economic and cultural factors on the sex ratio, which has been consistently declining in the country. The research highlights the disparities in sex ratio not only at the overall level but also in rural and urban sectors. Understanding this disparity is essential to comprehend employment, consumption patterns, and social needs within communities. The study discloses an imbalanced sex ratio in Karnataka, with a continuous decline from 1901 to 2011, except for marginal improvements, leading to significant shortages of females in both urban and rural areas.
