This paper examines the initial results from Census 1991, 2001 and 2011. This paper discusses the decadal growth rate, decadal growth rate difference, sex ratio, literacy rate and its growth pattern at the state and district level of Chhattisgarh. The male-female differentials in literacy rates are examined in some details. Considering the decline in the number of illiterates in the state for the first time, the paper examines the nature of changes that have taken place. The district- wise distribution of the population, sex ratio and literacy rate is mentioned and the factors responsible for a slow growth in literacy therein would be considered. The decadal growth rate increased to 22.59% from 18.06%; sex ratio is increased from 990 to 991 and the effective literacy rate of Chhattisgarh was 64.66% in 2001 which improved to 71.04% in 2011 according to the data of the Census of India.
