One finds no dearth of cities and towns that have developed in each and every state of Indian subcontinent
. The state of Gujarat
too is not an exception in this regard. Amongst several towns that have flourished one can easily distinguish Kapadvanj city. It lies in the district of Kheda of Gujarat state. Also for supervising the administration of this Kapadvanj, a municipality has been set up.
The strategic location of Kapadvanj is also significant. It lies approximately between
23.02° N and 73.07° E thus rising to a height of 69 meters or 226 feet.
The study of the discussion of a city becomes incomplete unless and until one gets to identify the demography of that particular city. In Kapadvanj also, quite a handful of demographers have been employed and thus conducted surveys and research works. As a result they have made it possible to throw some light about the demographical scenario of Kapadvanj. In this regard a special mentioning may be made of the Census report of a particular year.

Just like any other places in India, number of males are more in number than females. This fact can be established on the basis of individual percentage of both male and female, which has been derived from this census report. Thus male constitutes of 52 percent, while the percentage of females in Kapadvanj comprises of 48 percent.
