Kerala has India's highest sex ratio. India has a sex ratio of 940 girls for every 1000 males, whereas Kerala has a sex ratio of 1058 females for every 1000 males. People in Kerala are educated, hence there is little difference between a girl child and a boy child. Thus, there is no female foeticide and a balanced sex ratio. The ratio of females to males in a population is referred to as the "sex ratio." The National Family Health Surveys (NFHS), the Civil Registration System, the Sample Registration System, and the Health Management Information System have all been used in India to assess the sex ratio.
