in the SSS real inequality increased by 327 ppt to 324 So the level of inequality is less in Gujarat and the increase is less and the increase is small Two education: The increase in school enrolment in comparator states is higher than the increase in Gujarat but this result has largely to do with the fact that the variable being considered is subject to a ceiling value (100 per cent enrolment) So if a state starts with a higher initial level its growth rate or increment will by definition most likely be less (Think about Kerala — according to increase it is the worst performing state) In 2011-12 female enrolment of the disadvantaged (SCs STs and Muslims) in Gujarat was 901 per cent compared to 867 for the comparator states The corresponding levels in 1999-2000 were 867 and 572 per cent respectively Three access to water and sanitation: Very similar increases in both Gujarat and the SSS; however Gujarat ahead by about 4 to 8 percentage points with the highest lead in urban areas (97 per cent in Gujarat vs 89 per cent in SSS) Four health: Female infant mortality in Gujarat was 60 deaths per 1000 births in 2001 and declined to 42 in 2011; for the SSS the decline was slightly larger to 36 from 565 in 2001 But female life expectancy increased by more in Gujarat: from 646 in 2001 to 71 in 2008 versus a smaller increase (659 to 708) for the comparator states Note also that in 2001 female life expectancy in Gujarat was 13 ppt lower than SSS; in 2008 it was marginally higher Five sex ratio at birth (SRB): It is quite unlikely that a chief minister can have any influence over trends in the sex ratio especially the sex ratio at birth The only reason this statistic is being documented is because it was much talked about when Modi became the PM nominee of the BJP in September 2013 That was the stick used to beat up the Gujarat model but without presentation of evidence of course For whatever its worth the SRB statistics suggest that the lot of the girl child has improved considerably in Gujarat between 2001 and 2011 The increase is of 72 points (from 844 to 916) second only to the increase observed in Himachal Pradesh (from 826 to 935) The national increase was considerably less at only 16 points (from 892 to 908) (Note that the biological ratio of girl births to 1000 boy births is 950) Several bits of data presented in this and in my earlier article reveal a consistent story a story independent of the type of data (micro-household or state level) used The reality is not data dependent or dependent on the choice of states used to compare Gujarat with One can make the absurd choice of choosing the best performing state for each separate variable and then seeing where Gujarat stands or make the equally absurd claim that “look Himachal is better on sex ratio so shouldn’t one be talking of the Himachal model” Alternatively the research and policy community can accept the fact that the socio-economic performance of Gujarat has been the best or certainly among the best of all the states in India for the post-2000 time-period Maybe the policies that Gujarat pursued in this time-period had something to do with its exceptional performance The writer is chairman of Oxus Investments an emerging market advisory firm and a senior advisor to Zyfin a leading financial information company For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News" said Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins.
