NFHS Report: For the first time since independence, the number of women in the country has increased compared to men! | In A First, Government Survey Shows More Women Than Men In India

The number of women is increasing in the country. File picture.

New Delhi: This is like an inverted myth. Although there are more men than women in the country so far, the number of women has surpassed the number of men in this country for the first time since independence. This information has recently come up in the National Family and Health Survey-5. It is known that at present the ratio of males to females in the country is 1000: 1020, that is, the number of females per 1000 males is 1020.

As soon as the results of the survey on certain states were released, the Ministry of Health said, “Through these results, we can say that India is going to join the group of developed countries. This is the first time the Gender Ratio has crossed a thousand. ” As women outnumber men, opportunities are expected to increase in various places, starting with their workplaces. The Center for Women’s Empowerment also discussed measures ranging from financial independence to eliminating gender discrimination.

According to the National Family and Health Survey, not only the sex ratio but also the sex ratio at birth has increased comparatively. Where the birth rate was 919 in 2015-16, it has increased to 929 in 2019-2020. According to NFHS-3, the male-female ratio in India was 1000: 1000 in 2005-06. That is, the number of men and women was the same. In 2015-16, the ratio was reduced to 991: 1000.

On November 24, the Union Ministry of Health released the 2019-21 NFHS report. The survey was conducted in 14 states and union territories. Other issues related to population, birth rate, child health, family welfare, nutrition and health of those states have also been reviewed. The first round of reports was published in December 2020 in 22 states and union territories.

According to the National Family and Health Survey, 7.6 percent of the country’s children are born in some kind of health center. As the rate of NFHS-4 increases, India is reportedly slowly moving towards universal institutional birth. With the help of trained health workers, death of newborns and mothers after delivery can be largely avoided. Everyone should go to a health center to avoid complications during delivery, but it is possible to avoid many risks.

At present, only 8% of mothers in the country get proper postpartum care with the help of health workers after delivery. Earlier this rate was 72.4 percent. According to the Center, it is possible to reduce the maternal and neonatal mortality rate in the country by providing proper care and rest to the mother as well as the newborn after delivery. As the baby or new mother is more likely to die within one month after delivery, it is advisable to seek the help of a doctor or health worker within 48 hours of delivery.
