Regional Analysis of Gender-Related Development: Districts of Western India


  • Preet Rustagi


In this paper the diverse dimensions of gender development are examined using individual indicators for the districts of the western region of India. The western region for the purpose of this study covers the five states of Goa, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh. Using a selected set of indicators, the levels of women’s development in demographic, educational, health-related, socio-cultural and economic spheres are identified. The methodology used is a simple ranking exercise that highlights relative levels of development or backwardness. [CWDS]
