Koath is a notified area in Rohtas district in the Indian state of Bihar.

Geography[edit]

Koath is located at 25°19′N 84°16′E / 25.32°N 84.27°E / 25.32; 84.27.[1] It has an average elevation of 73 metres (239 feet).

One of the main challenges this "big" village faces is the virtual isolation from big cities. Koath lies away from the main highways and people have to resort to travel by rickshaws or horse-carts when they land in Babhanawal adda. The main bridge linking Koath to Babhanawal Adda was broken for decades, albeit it is functional ineffectively now-a-days.

Demographics[edit]

As of 2001 India census,[2] Koath had a population of 20,809. Males constitute 52% of the population and females 48%. Koath has an average literacy rate of 48%, lower than the national average of 59.5%: male literacy is 59%, and female literacy is 36%. In Koath, 19% of the population is under 6 years of age.

Education[edit]

Jagnarayan high school serves to provide high school education for Koath and its neighboring villages.
