What the NFHS-5 Results Reveal – Hindustan Times

What the NFHS-5 Results Reveal - Hindustan Times

The findings of the fifth National Family and Health Survey (NFHS) – which was conducted between 2019 and 2021 – should be regarded as a major turning point for policy-making in India. Sure, NFHS is a sample survey, and we’ll have to wait for the 2021 (delayed) census figures to verify some of the findings. But policy settlement and reassessment need not be postponed.

First, the firsts: India’s total fertility rate is falling below replacement level and the number of women outnumbers the men in the population. Given that the proportion of the population under 15 has fallen over the past decade, the biggest policy challenge is not improving literacy or controlling the population. It should provide sustainable, rewarding employment, including for women.

To be sure, the main relationship between men and women should not blind us to the problems of the entrenched patriarchy, which promotes preference for sons in various illegal ways. This is reflected in the fact that the gender ratio for children under five is still 929 girls per 1,000 boys. This applies to social intervention as much as to economic or health-related interventions.

Then there is the matter of India’s food security challenge. By and large, malnutrition continues to decline. But complacency can be costly here. First, the progress of the reduction in malnutrition has slowed down. This should be read with the economic growth slowing down between NFHS-4 (2015-16) and NFHS-5 (2019-20). That the government has repeatedly extended the post-pandemic provision of free rations to 800 million people – even for political reasons – underlines the precarious situation of food security in India. The other key insight to be drawn is the ability of limited financial aid to achieve behavioral change, which comes at an economic cost. Both the Swachh Bharat mission and the Ujjwala Yojna seem to have made remarkable progress in their goals of healthy sanitation and the use of clean fuel for cooking. But the data shows that the actual performance is significantly lower than the claims made by the government. There is an important policy lesson here. In some respects, there is no substitute for the fruits of high GDP growth.

Last but not least, there is the growing regional divide in India. The southern states have much better socio-economic and health indicators than their counterparts in northern and central India. The former will also see a shrinking share of the population. If and when the demarcation takes place, it could reduce their political representation in the legislature. It will not be a smooth transition.

Comfortable and dry weather this week, rain returns over the weekend

SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – This week is in for a treat as we will have comfortable and dry weather through Friday, we will pay for the great weather by dealing with some rain for the coming weekend.

Cold air will greet the early risers today as temperatures at dawn will be in the 30s and low 40s. The wet ground from the recent rain and cool temperatures is allowing some patchy to dense fog to form, it won’t be a widespread problem but valleys and lowland areas will see some dense fog until 8am

High temperatures expected on Monday afternoon

A subtle weather change today will have a big impact on our weather this week. The wind will shift from the northeast to the south today. This will start a warming trend that will continue for the rest of the week. Highs should be comfortably above 60 this afternoon with a light breeze from the southeast at 5 to 10 miles per hour. After breaking through the morning fog in some areas, it will be sunny in the afternoon and early evening with clear skies at night.

The south wind will bring a warming trend for the day and night. Mornings will generally remain cool, but tonight’s lows are forecast to be in the 40s, we may not see 30 degree temperatures for the rest of the week.

Monday night on Tuesday morning forecast low temperatures

Peaks will be in the low 70s under partly cloudy skies Tuesday, with mostly sunny to partly cloudy weather expected to continue through Friday. Highlights will be in the mid to upper 70s Wednesday through Friday.

Our next cold front is approaching the ArkLaTex late Friday, it’s possible we’ll see some rain late in the day, but for now I’ll leave the Friday forecast dry. This front will move into the ArkLaTex on Saturday, bringing with it a series of showers and thunderstorms throughout the day, with some rain lasting through Sunday. Saturday appears to be the day with the most weather as there is a chance that the rain will clear quickly enough to keep Sunday dry in many areas. If you have outdoor plans this weekend, stay tuned for the weather forecast throughout the week.
