The survey carried out across 6.1 lakh sample households had significant pointers on how women are girls are treated in India. So, what does it reveal?
The Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare recently released details of the first phase of the National Family Health Survey (NFHS)-5 (2019-20) for 17 states and five union territories.
There is definitely something worryingly wrong with how India is approaching its social development goals.
Electricity, LPG or natural gas and biogas are considered as clean fuel in the survey.
The NFHS-5 (2019-20) was conducted in 6.1 lakh sample households, involving household-level interviews from 22 states and UTs.
While the state now has a TFR of 3, as compared to the last survey when it stood at 3.4, Kerala and Goa are among 8 states where the sex ratio at birth has worsened.
The NFHS-5 showed that 20 states and UTs have recorded a rise in the percentage of children under 5 years who are overweight.
