Jagruti I. Gohel

Abstract :

 This paper is an attempt to analyze the effect of female literacy rate on crude birth rate for all districts of Gujarat state of India. In this study we will compare all 26 districts of Gujarat to one indicator each of education and health i.e. female literacy rate and crude birth rate respectively. From the results found, we prove that with the increase in female literacy there is a decrease in the crude birth rate. As increase in female literacy, the more women are empowered socially, and with their control on their decision, and the knowledge and awareness regarding health and contraceptive, the crude birth rate eventually decreases leading to sustainable development of a nation
