This paper examines the status of women in Punjab in the light of some selected important gender-related indicators covering a wide spectrum of access to amenities and demographic and reproductive health status of women. The main aim of the paper is to examine the inter district variations in the status of women in respect of various selected variables under study. Data from various sources, including Census and DLHS-4 and NFHS-4 surveys, had been put to use to calculate Z scores and generating a correlation matrix. The average score of each component was summed up for all districts and a quantitative measure of the status of women was obtained.
