Socio-Economic Characteristics of Female Population in Usilampatti Taluk, Madurai District Using Multivariate Analysis and Structural Equation Model

Authors(3) :-S. Valarmathi, Dr. I. K. Manonmani, Dr. S. Vadivel

The female population characteristic of any area or region is a significant reflection of physical, economic, social justice conditions and availability of the resources. Women’s status is often described in terms of their level of education, employment, income, and health as well as their roles within the family and the society. In view of this chapter has been analyzed using systematic socio spatial analysis by means of a structural eduation modeling and factor analysis to extract various aspects of the female population characteristic in the Usilampatti Taluk.
