After formation of state in 1966, Haryana has made enormous strides towards the progress. Economic scenario of Haryana has changed a lot but, the level of social development is not high. The levels of literacy, sex ratio and urbanization are not according to the economic level. In Haryana, the progress of socio-economic development is not uniform. Some districts like Panchkula, Ambala, Gurgaon, Faridabad show higher status in terms of literacy, urbanization while sex ratio is low in these districts.
