Digital Gender Atlas
Union ministry of HRD has launched a web-based digital gender atlas to map the progress on girl education throughout the country. The map has been prepared with data collated from the Unified District Information System for Education Data, Census 2011 and District-level Health Survey.
It has been developed to identify the low performing geographic pockets for girls, particularly from marginalised groups such as scheduled castes, scheduled tribes and Muslim minorities, on specific gender related education indicators.
It visualizes the vulnerability status of an area based on composite index of three parameters such as rural female literacy and percentage of boys and girls with disabilities, particularly girls. The performance status of individual indicators can be visualized at the state and district level, differentiated by colour coding.
