Title

Impact of Gender Inequality in Education on Economic Growth in India: An Economic Analysis

Abstract

Education seeks to nourish the good qualities and draw out the best in an individual. Gender inequality in education refers to the inequality in education between females and males. The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) mentions that, there are close links between sustainable development, reproductive health and gender equality. The paper aims to examine the gender inequality in education and investigate the impact of gender inequality in education on economic growth in India. To examine the gender inequality in education across India, gender inequality in literacy rate is examined for the period 1991-2011 using secondary data. Gender inequality in Never Attended Rate (NAR) for the different age groups i.e. 7-14, 15-19, 2-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-59, 60+ and ANS (Age not stated) for 2011 is also examined using secondary data to examine the gender inequality in education across India. The paper also investigates the impact of gender inequality in education on economic growth in India by using time series secondary data for the period 1961-2011 upon Gross Domestic Product Per Capita (GDPPC) and Gender Gap (GG) in literacy rate. The study finds that gender inequality in education where females lag behind males exist in India as a whole and in all its States and UTs. The regression result also reveals that gender inequality in education has a negative impact on economic growth in India.
