The “ABC Index” is an unweighted average of the four indicators.
  • Survival(% of children who survive toage 5)
  • Immunization (% of children who are fully immunized)
  • Nutrition (% of children who are notunderweight)
  • Schooling (% of children who attend school)

  • The Achievements of Babies and Children (ABC) Index measures four very basic aspects of child wellbeing - survival, immunisation, nutrition and schooling. India scores no more than 66% overall. But states such as Tamil Nadu and Himachal Pradesh, and even Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, have made rapid strides in child development. What is the key? The rights-based approach and outstanding records of active state involvement in the provision of health, nutrition and education services.
