Does information dissemination help in improving child sex ratio - Evidence from India
The research deals with the policy evaluation of one of the bigger projects undertaken by Prime Minister Modi in India called Beti Bachao Beti Padao (Save the Girl Child). I investigate using data for 5 years and across all the districts in India whether the policy has met its objectives or not. I use the Civil Registry data for the sex ratios for all districts, for GDP I use each state's economic surveys released each year. For Marriage rates I use the National Health and Family Surveys.
