Here is some heart-warming news that will bring more cheer at Christmas: the Christian community has again emerged with the best population sex ratio in India. There are 1023 females for every 1000 males among Christians, way ahead of all other communities and the national average of 943.
Hindus and Sikhs have the worst sex ratios at 939 and 903 respectively. This has been linked to widespread sex selection practices which range from female feticide to infanticide. At 951, Muslims have a better sex ratio than Hindus and Sikhs but lagging behind Buddhists (965) and Jains (951).
