Using the district factsheets from the National Family Health Surveys (NFHS-4 and NFHS-5), we present an interactive dashboard to visualize health, nutrition, and population indicators across India. Through this dashboard, users can visualize and analyze NFHS-5 (2019-21) data, as well as change between NFHS-4 (2015-16) and NFHS-5 for the districts of India. Users can further filter visualization and analysis by:
- Aspirational Districts
The aim of this interactive data resource is to inform design of policies and enable prioritization of districts for intervention in the domains of health, nutrition and population. This dashboard was created in collaboration with the National Institution for Transforming India (NITI) Aayog and the International Institute for Population Sciences (IIPS).
Underscoring the relevance of the dashboard, Dr. Rajiv Kumar, Vice Chairman of NITI Aayog, notes
"Insights gained from this data will sharpen our understanding of how specific policies such as Poshan Abhiyan or the Aspirational Districts Program are working to improve these vital indicators. I believe this resource will enhance our efforts towards precision, data-based governance by giving policymakers an unprecedented lens through which they can guide new interventions and prioritize the communities where the need is greatest."
