▼ NITI Aayog develops handbook of state statistics [09-1-17]
NITI Aayog has developed a Handbook of State Statistics that consolidates key statistics across sectors for every Indian State/UT.
While the State data on crucial indicators is currently fragmented across different sources, this handbook provides a one-stop database of important State statistics.
Starting with Gross State Domestic Product (GSDP), the handbook provides sectorial compositions of State economies from 1980-81 to the latest possible year.
Five different GSDP series are available between 1980-81 and now, and this database covers all of them.
It covers statistics on State government finances from 1981 to 2017across indicators such as gross fiscal deficits, revenue deficits, social sector expenditure, capital expenditure etc.
Labour statistics from the national sample surveys (NSS), statistics on labour force participation rates (LFPR), worker-population ratio (WPR) by industry and unemployment rates are also presented.
Data on education covers primary, secondary and tertiary levels including enrolment ratios, schools, enrolment, teachers and performance indicators, among others.
Some of the health indicators covered by the handbook include infant mortality rate (IMR), birth rates, life expectancy, sex ratio at birth, immunisation and institutional deliveries among others.
For certain indicators such as IMR, TFR, birth rates, data from 1971 onwards to 2015 is available.
For other indicators the data series starts in 2005.
