Based on this, the gender development index (GDI) is derived. The districts are arranged in ascending order of GDI such that the lowest ranked state is listed first and the highest ranked state is listed at the end. Here also the worst off districts are Dharmapuri, Villupuram, Krishnagiri and Thiruvannamalai.

Note: Years for various indicators are the same as in Table 4.1. For details see the Eleventh Five Year Plan Document. In regard to the components of gender deficiency, as far as life expectancy at birth in concerned relative to the Tamil Nadu average, the lowest performing districts are Perambalur, Thanjavur, Pudukkottai and Dharmapuri. Perambalur is also the lowest as far as female literacy is concerned. For GER, Dharmapuri, Theni and Ramanathapuram are generally placed at the lower end in gender related indices. In respect of per capita income, female earnings are the lowest in Thoothukudi, Thirunelveli and Sivagangai. In respect of variation relative to the average, variation is least for GER, followed by life expectancy at birth and literacy (Table 4.4 and Appendix Table 4.2). 78

Note: All districts are shown in Appendix Table 4.2. 4.3 Selected Demographic Characteristics of Districts In order to meet the MDGs, the districts also need to be identified where the need is relatively more. We first look at demographic dimensions, which require a larger focus on the neediest districts. In Table 4.5, a ranking of districts in terms of percentage of population in the range of 0-6 years is given. The larger the percent of children, the lower is the ranking of the district in the index value, which is calculated in the context of an all India perspective. These data are based on a compilation of International Institute of Population Sciences (2006) (see Annexure 4.2 for methodology and definitions). Districts like Dharmapuri, Ariyalur, Pudukkottai, and Ramanathapuram have the largest number of young children. In regard to birth order of 3 and above, districts that show the highest percentage and therefore the lowest index values are Nagapattinam, Villupuram and Ariyalur. Data for all Tamil Nadu districts are given in Appendix Table 4.3.
