Abstract: The present study was conducted to estimate the correlation between the Sustainable Livestock Production Index (SLPI) and Human Develop- ment Index (HDI). The SLPI was constructed for each district of Tamil Nadu using eight indicators, three each capturing the economic (livestock productivity, labour productivity and energy availability from livestock products) and social dimension of sustainability (rural female literacy, access to public infrastructure and growth rate of common property resources) and two for the ecological aspects (relative area under natural vegetation cover to cultivated land and surplus animals in relation to carrying capacity of land). The rank order correlation between SLPI and HDI in various districts of Tamil Nadu was found to be positively significant (0.451), which implied that there was moderate positive correlation between SLPI and HDI.
