The latest census has brought out both good news and the bad.
Good news:
The thing to cherish is the Literacy rate. It reads 74% compared to 65% at the last census. Ten states and union territories have scored a rate of more than 85%.

The growth rate is 17.64% between 2001-2011 which represents the sharpest decline since independence.

Bad news:
The child sex ratio came as a biggest shock at 914 girls(0-6 years of age) for every 1000 boys. This is the lowest since independence. This is the matter of worry which needs complete overhauling.
