In the Population Census of 2011 it was revealed that the population ratio in India 2011 is 943 females per 1000 of males.It is a more accurate and refined indicator of the extent of prenatal sex selection.The comparison of observed sex ratio at birth with normal sex ratio at birth gives an idea of girls missing at birth.

Cont.4Meaning and Definition of Sex RatioSex ratio at birth in India for the period (2007-09) was 906, while the internationally observed normal sex ratio at birth is 952 or more girls born per 1000 boys.

Child sex ratio ( scheduled tribes)19All 152 districts with more than 25 percent tribal population according to 2011 census have been mapped to reflect the CSR in tribal areas for 2001 and 2011. Though the CSR for most of the tribal districts was above the national average of 918, the situation significantly deteriorated in 2011. While in 2001, 120 tribal districts had CSR of 950 or more, in 2011 this number declined to 90 districts. A comparison of 2001 and 2011 CSR maps, points to small pockets of contiguous districts in the range 900-949 extending from the west to the east of the country. The north-eastern districts have witnessed a dip in CSR below 950. Interestingly, when tribal districts are compared with non-tribal ones, a diffusion effect is evident wherein CSR decline in non-tribal areas is engulfing tribal districts as well in a diffusion effect is evident wherein CSR decline in non-tribal areas is engulfing tribal districts as well in a contiguous pattern.Child population in Punjab 201120Total population 2,77,43,338Male population 1,46,39,465Female population 1,31,03,873Child population 30,76,219Sex ratio 896/1000Child sex ratio 846/1000

Notably, the northeast to the southwest belt from Hoshiarpur to Bhatinda, registered a CSR above 850 in 2011.
