Abstract :

 The present work carried out develops a methodology to estimate the parameters concerning missing female child in the age group of 0–5 and female feticide in India and its diverse states; for which direct data are difficult to be obtained. Therefore, appropriate formulae and methods have been made enabling to estimate the above rates as well as other associated parameters from indirect data; such as data providing information on the population of males and females in the age group 0–5.
