Details for all districts are shown in Appendix Table 4.1. Charts 4.1 to 4.4 show the districts in descending order of index of deficiency for these indicators. In Chart 4.1 relative deficiency in respect of achievement regarding life expectancy at birth is shown. There is a long stretch of the curve which is largely horizontal indicating that most districts are placed within the range of 15-20 percent deficiency relative to the average indicating greater uniformity across districts.

Chart 4.2: Literacy Rate: Districts Arranged in Descending Order of Deficiency 45.0 40.0 35.0 30.0 25.0 20.0 15.0 10.0 5.0 0.0 Dharmapuri Villupuram Erode Namakkal Tiruchirapalli Dindigul Caddalore Sivaganai Vellore Virudhunagar Thiruvallur Thiruvarur Thirunelveli Madurai The Nilgiris Kanniyakumar Literacy Rate (2004-05) Chart 4.2 also shows that there is a steady decline from the highest to the lowest level of deficiency. This pattern is repeated in Chart 4.3, which shows all the Tamil Nadu districts in descending order of deficiency for Gross Enrolment Ratio. In the case of life expectancy at birth, the most deficient district is Theni followed by Dindigul. For GER, the most deficient worst districts are Thiruvannamalai followed by Villupuram.
