*Dr. Ratnaprabha S. Jadhav and Dr. Brototi Biswas

ABSTRACT

Demographic characteristics like population growth, density, sex ratio, literacy etc. determine the qualitative and quantitative characteristics of population. In the present work an attempt has been made to analyze the variations in the demographic characteristics of Shirur Circle of Shirur Tahsil, Pune District of Maharashtra over three census years – 1991, 2001 and 2011. Statistical data on various demographic characteristics likeMale/female percentage of population, sex-ratio, child sex ratio, distribution of Schedule Tribes (ST) and Schedule Caste (SC) population andliteracy level for each of the 23 villages falling under Shirur circle has been studied over three census years and the change in the parameters were analyzed. ArcGIS software was applied to prepare the base map and thematic maps.In general it was observed that the study region has a declining sex ratio (greater proportion of male over female, declining CSR and general sex ratio) which is a matter of concern. The literacy percentage of the study area is however increasing at the rate of almost 9% per census year which is a silver lining for the study area.

Keywords: Shirur, Ranjangaon MIDC, SC/ST Population, Child sex ratio.
