ABSTRACT:
Understanding the society of India in all its complexities not only needs better measurements which can evaluate it but also an eye for linking details provided by societal parameters in order to obtain a realistic picture. Judging the position of a society, in terms of its socio-economic parameters no doubt provides a statistics based viewpoint but it becomes imperative to understand as to which socio-economic parameter should be used in understanding a particular aspect of the society, as in the case of this paper, understanding the gender disparity at its most crude level. The sex ratio thereby becomes the crude measure of analyzing gender disparity but the conclusion obtained by merely analyzing sex ratio may be distorted as migration affects the emergent result. Along with it, the longevity of a female is higher than that of a male which also modifies the actual scenario. Therefore, an analysis of the child sex ratio (i.e. sex ratio of age group 0-6) can be said to provide a better picture as changes in the sex ratios of children are better indicators of status of girl child and “it also reflects the sum total of intra-household gender relations”1
