Life expectancy at birth Male Kerala had long ago recognised the importance of palliative care as can be seen from the growth of community-based care units. The volunteers in these units, after training can provide psychological, social and spiritual support.
May 10, May 23, This is pretty firm ground: Yet confusion persists, so I decided to take another look at the data, just in case I had been carried away. Summary indexes This time I looked at a bunch of summary indexes based on multiple development indicators.
The latest HDI computations for Indian states, presented by Reetika Khera and myself in Economic and Political Weekly, place Gujarat in the 9th position among 20 major States — very close to the middle of the ranking.
In the same paper, we also looked at a summary index of child well-being, nicknamed Achievements of Babies and Children ABCwhich is based on four indicators related to child nutrition, survival, education and immunisation respectively.
Briefly, the idea is that poverty manifests itself in different kinds of deprivation — lack of food, shelter, sanitation, schooling, health care, and so on. There is some inevitable arbitrariness in the specification of basic deprivations, but nevertheless, the MPI is a very useful supplement to other poverty indicators.
A new entrant in this family of summary statistics is the Composite Development Index devised by the Raghuram Rajan Committee. This index has ten components related to per capita consumption, household amenities, health, education, urbanisation, connectivity, financial inclusion, and so on, based on the latest available data.
Looking at the list of component indicators, an unsuspecting reader of the mainstream media might expect Gujarat to emerge pretty close to the top of the State ranking.
Here again, Gujarat scores 9th among 20 major States! There is something almost uncanny about this pattern, since the summary indexes are based on very different indicators. I have reported all the recent summary indexes I know of.
But then Gujarat slips from the 9th to the 10th position among 20 major States, according to the latest estimates for The Raghuram Rajan Committee also devised another interesting index: And that is precisely what this index does. Further, it focusses on performance in the decade of the s, when Gujarat was supposed to be at its best.
Surely, Gujarat will fare well this time? On the contrary, it slips from 9th to 12th in the ranking of 20 major States. If there is a Gujarat model, then there must also be a Haryana model and perhaps a Karnataka model. Incidentally, Maharashtra does better than Gujarat on all the summary indexes mentioned earlier.
Why, then, is Gujarat held as a model and not Maharashtra? Your guess is as good as mine. If Gujarat is a model, then the real toppers, like Kerala and Tamil Nadu, must be supermodels.
Indeed, not only do Kerala and Tamil Nadu routinely come at — or near — the top in rankings of summary development indexes, they also surpass other States in terms of the speed of improvement. For instance, Kerala and Tamil Nadu do better than any other major State in terms of both level and change of the Composite Development Index.
An interesting question arises: Gujarat certainly shines in comparison — but so do many other States.
