Urban & Rural CSR in Census 2011

July 15, 2011

Over the last decade, the female-to-male child sex ratio (CSR) in rural India has dropped alarmingly.

As reported today in an article in TOI, the 2011 census data shows that:

In the 2011 census, urban CSR is still much worse (902) than rural CSR (919), but over the last decade (2001 – 2011) the fall in rural CSR (15 points) is around four times than that in urban CSR (4 points).


  • Haryana has both the worst urban and rural CSR
  • Nagaland has the best urban CSR
  • Andaman & Nicobar has the best rural CSR
