Greeting from PIDE P&R

Wishing you all a very happy international women month. The half of the population of Pakistan is comprising of women who are responsible for the development and growth of the other half making it a developed, healthy and strong society. We have been always hearing about the half and half ratio of men and women and wishing to provide a factual figure given by the Government of Pakistan. The census after a long gap finally happened in 2017 which is a good step but the final official results aren’t out yet. It isn’t to bring in the negative aspect but to put forward a suggestion to do the next census soon and the results should be made official too in good time and free of controversy. It gets difficult for the researchers to base their researches on redundant information when it comes to demographic analysis.
