NFHS says sex ratio at birth in India a worry

The latest National Family Health Survey (NFHS-5) data for 2019-21 indicates that India has more females than males with its overall sex ratio having risen to 1,020 after seeing a dip from 1,000 in 2005-06 to 991 in 2015-16. The sex ratio at birth (SRB), however, was still worryingly low at 929, indicating continued sex selection at birth, despite an improvement from the previous survey.
