Public Affairs Index 2018 – Governance in the States of India – Children of India


Public Affairs Index (PAI) is a data driven platform to rank the 30 States of India from the lens of governance. While it is a complex task to rank the Indian states which are economically, culturally and socially so diverse, Public Affairs Centre (PAC) has developed PAI as a unique statistical tool to evaluate the performance of governance in the States. PAI is largely based on secondary data and has been extracted from Union Government Ministries and Departments.

PAI 2016 ranked the states of India on the basis of 10 broad themes, spread across 25 focus subjects and focusing on 68 individual indicators. The report also incorporates a study on Sentiment Analysis.

PAI 2017 was similar to PAI 2016 and had 10 themes, 26 focus subjects and 82 indicators. It also included a new study on Inequality, which focuses on the extent of the gap existing between the various strata of society from an economic, social and gender perspectives.

The new PAI 2018 report is similar to the earlier PAI reports; however, this year, the study is more rigorous and more comprehensive. PAI 2018 comprises of 10 broad themes, 30 focus subjects and a gamut of 100 indicators. In addition, there is a special chapter on the Children of India describing in detail various issues regarding the manner in which we deal with our future citizens.
