Abstract

Using principal component analysis(PCA) the paper construct a composite health index for each district for comparing the health status in various districts of Haryana. The health status was measured by various indicators covering three aspects of health, viz., health outcome indicators, health infrastructure indicators and access to and uses of health facilities. We found wide inter-district disparities in various health indicators. Health is not sole responsibilities of state and public in general uses both public and private health services. The private health care has grown significantly Hence, the paper also compared health outcome by comparing Infant Mortality rates and Child Mortality rate (CMR) across district of the state. We found that some districts scoring high on health infrastructure performed poorly on uses of health facilities and vice-versa.
