Spatio-temporal changes in literacy of Nandurbar district of Maharashtra, India
RC Ahire, AA Badgujar
Literacy is simply defined as proportion of people who can read and write with understanding to the total population of a region. But it plays a very crucial role in the social and economic development in a country. A low level of literacy in a population retards the progress along the path of social and economic development and political power. Illiteracy, particularly among female in a society, results in stagnation of technology, social and cultural lags weakness, national security and overall staginess of the economic progress. rnThe present paper, intends to study Total, Male and Female literacy rates and spatio-temporal changes occurred in it during the last decade in Nandurbar district. The literacy rates for both the sexes are low as compared to the State and spatio-temporal changes occurred in these rates are also low. It is admirable that the literacy rates have shown considerable increase but the situation is not much satisfactory in tribal tehsils of the district.
