Comparative study of Population

      The population is the most important resource of a district, on which the development of the district depends. Statistics are collected related to the population every 10 years by the Indian Government, on the basis of which social, economic, industrial development schemes are prepared. The census survey was conducted for the first time in the India in 1872 AD and the census survey is being done on a gap of every 10 years since 1881 AD. In this sequence, the census survey in the year 2011 is 15th since 1881 AD and 7th after independence.

      Karauli district was founded in the year 1997 and in the year 2001, census was conducted for the first time independently. As per the Census Survey 2001 the population of the district was 12,09,665 and it increased to 14, 58, 459 in the year 2011. It means the population of the district increased by approx 2.50Lakh. The growth rate in the decade 1991-2001 was 30.39 percent and it was reduced to 20.94 percent in the decade 2001- 2011. During this period, there was a population increase in the male from 6,51,998 to 7,84,943 and in female category from 5,57,667 to 6,73,516. In the same way, the sex ratio became 855 females per 1000 male, but this situation could not be termed as satisfactory and indicates a gender disparity in the district. 

     In these 10 years, the alarming fact is that there is a rapid decrease in the sex ratio in 0-6 age group. A decline in sex ratio of 844 girls to 1000 boys (2001) to 837 in the year 2011 has been observed which an important point of discussion. Boys-Girls sex ratio, female foeticide on a large scale etc indicates preference gives to male child over girl child.

      If we look out the situation of literacy in the district, then the literacy rate became 67.34 percent in the year 2011 which was 63.18 percent in the year 2001. The literacy of men and women is 82.96 percent and 49.38 percent, respectively. This literacy rate indicates the gender disparity between men and women.
