Author(s): Chandra Shekhar Sarkar and Gouri Mondal

Abstract: The present paper examines the correlation between the caste-based female literacy rate and child sex ratio in the Alipurduar District of West Bengal in 2011. The study is secondary data based which is collected from the Census of India. The study aims to analyze the spatial pattern of female literacy rate and child sex ratio and to find out the correlation between the caste-based female literacy rate and child sex ratio in Alipurduar District. Pearson’s correlation method is used to identify the correlation between female literacy rate and child sex ratio. The result of the study reveals that there is a wide disparity in the spatial distribution of caste-based female literacy rate and child sex ratio in the Alipurduar district. The study shows that the correlation between the caste-based female literacy rate and the child sex ratio is not equal. Correlation is positive in the case of General Caste but negative for both the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe in Alipurduar District. The study also highlights that the correlation between the Scheduled Caste female literacy rate and child sex ratio is significant at the 95 percent level.
