Present information regarding the following visually, using charts.
1. Official languages, sex ratio, percentage (or ratio) of urban to total population and literacy rates across different states and union territories (UTs) of India.
2. Different religions of the country and demographic variables, such as literacy rates and sex ratios.
Data on variables with respect to states and UTs were downloaded from this page on Wikipedia (tables related to States and Union Territories of India). Data on different religions and demographic variables were downloaded from this page on Wikipedia (table 2, Census Information for 2001). Since these pages can be changed, a copy of these have been downloaded and a pdf version of both pages can be found in this document.
The following tables were arrived at after data were cleaned. (You can click on the header of any column to arrange the table based on that column.)
Let’s focus on the data presented in the first table above.
Literacy Rate (in %) of different states and UTs
It is a measure of number of females to 1000 males.

Religion and Demographics
Let’s take a brief look at data from the religion and demographics table in the two graphs below. (The graphs can be clicked to enlarge them.) For scaling purposes, in both graphs below, Sex Ratio related variables were divided by 10, making these variables number of females to 100 males.
