This paper examines the relationship between Female Literacy Rate and Total Fertility rate at district level for Rajasthan using Census 2001. This paper also attempts to examine the possible impact of the educational attainment of female on their fertility behavior in Rajasthan. Further it examines male-female differential in literacy and decadal variation in female literacy in districts of Rajasthan using Provisional Totals of Census of 2001 and 2011. This study reveals that female literacy rate is inversely linearly related to Total Fertility Rate in Rajasthan. Results shows that female literacy has improved but Government need to enforce their Programmes more effectively and enrollment of Girls/Females in School & Colleges should be promoted.
