Is India’s Census Data Deliberately Fudged To Show Skewed Gender Ratio?

[Update on 20 March 2016 – A serious observation. Today it is found that this data of the population of India is changed on the census website. This is even more serious observation as this hints at possible fudging of India’s population data that are available in excel sheets and can be changed any time. The population data on display here was obtained from the census website in 2014 for analysis but does not match the website records today.

Govt. did not give any reply to our RTIs filed for previous years’ agewise population data too]


While I started analyzing the Indian population to understand India’s female foeticide and infanticide information, I have never realized what I was set to discover. My analysis shows that there is a probability that India’s census data is deliberately misrepresented to show poor gender ratio in young generation thus keeping the theory of female infanticide alive.

Census and Female Feticide

To understand female infanticide information I have started analyzing census data for the years 2001 and 2011.


  1. The population data as published in 2001 and 2011 is true and that can not be debated
  2. Age” of an individual as per the census data represents the true age of that individual in the year of the census (i.e. Either 2001 if the census data was released on 2001 or 2011 when the age is taken from the census of 2011).

According to assumption 2, and an individual who was aged ‘0’ years in 2001 would have attended the age of ‘10’ years in 2011, the person who was aged ‘1’ year in 2001 was aged ‘11’ years in 2011 and so on.

To understand female infanticide (when any infant between the age of 0-6 years is killed due to non-medical reasons it is known as infanticide), I have taken population data between 0-6 years from the census of 2001 and compared the same with population data from the age group of 10-16 years as published in 2011 census. Here’s what I have found –

We find that for some mysterious reason there exists a difference between the total number of the same group of children. But considering this as acceptable error for the census as it is more of statistical measurement rather than the actual one, even if we do not raise any question in the difference in number (there may be data reporting error by our families as well), we find that the difference in numbers for both the genders is positive and NOT negative, signifying that there is NO killing of any children in the age group of 0-6 years.

Then why is the huge hue and cry created constantly regarding female foeticide and infanticide?

While checking the same pattern for all other groups of people based on age, I found this from the census information of the two years –

From the above analysis, we find that ONLY in first two age bands the number of female population increased over the same group of people in 2011 census indicating some manipulation in the data (population can decrease in the same group due to death, not increase). In all other age groups, we find a heavy decrease in the male population in 2011 census and overall we find at least 34 million men less in 2011 in different age groups. This is at least 10 million more when compared to the decrease in the female Indian population of these age groups.

Note the heavy and sudden decrease in the male population in the second age group 11-20 yrs (of 2001 census). The sudden HUGE decrease in the male population and a good increase in female population tells us that the population data in the first age group might be fudged to deliberately lower the number of the female population in 0-10 yrs group to show female foeticide and infanticide while keeping the overall gender numbers same.

We found that for the population between 0-6 years female infanticide does not exist. But still in the overall number the gender ratio is deliberately shown low and there can be ONLY ONE reason for that – to keep the feminist agenda and business around women empowerment going.

One argument may be that the average life expectancy of men is 63 years whereas that of women is 67 years. So when women live longer it is natural to have more decrease in male population. But even if we consider the census data till 51-60 age group (as of 2011 census) we find that decrease in male population is still much higher compared to that of female population –

We understand that the number of population of India in any particular age group can decrease in 2011 because of death but can the number increase? The trend is rightly showing for all age groups except the age group 0-10 years.

This analysis raises serious questions whether our census data is deliberately fudged for the purpose of keeping the real problem hidden from everyone. This analysis shows that currently there is an onslaught of men going on in India and deliberately a completely opposite picture is shown to the public.

We understand that women empowerment is a huge business today. So much that Indians are duped with fudged census data.

  1. I see an error that has crept in the interpretation. Not sure if its deliberate as it is rightly said ” there are lies, damned lies and statistics”
    When figures are compared between 0-10 & 10 – 20, it lets a classical mathematical error.
    0-10 or for that matter 10-20, are 11 events (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10).
    So, 11th event becomes common between the groups and distorts the data.
    Your effort is commendable. However, methodology is incorrect.
    Good Luck !!


    • Where is the 11th event common? The population of 0 yr becomes 10 by 2011 and counted in that age group. similarly the population of 10 in 2001 becomes 20 yr so calculated in that age group. SO where is the 11th group common in both the groups?
