The female to male ratio in the country is worsening day by day. According to a UN report, the sex ratio in the country has dipped from 976 girls to 1000 boys in 1961, to 927 girls in 2001; and to 918 girls in 2011. The fact that biologically girl children are more likely to survive than boys indicates that Girl child count is being decreased due to various other reasons like Gender Biased Sex Selection.

One more social problem leading to this worse situation is due to the one boy and one girl planning of families. They are actually planning to have at least one son and at most one daughter which is leading to increase in Male child count. Based on the 2001 Census, the report says the worst sex ratios has been in the North and West and worryingly Andhra Pradesh (United State) too is catching them up very fast.
