Census of India 2011

Population

In the most common sense of the word, a population is the collection of people or organisms of a particular species living in a given geographic area. Populations are studied in a wide variety of ways and disciplines. In population dynamics, size, age and sex structure, mortality, reproductive behaviour, and growth of a population are studied

World Human Population 2011

As of 1 April 2011, the world population is estimated by the United States Census Bureau to be 6.909 billion. The United Nations Population Fund designated 12 October 1999 as the approximate day on which world population reached 6 billion. According to papers published by the United States Census Bureau, the world population hit 6.5 billion ( 6,500,000,000 ) on 24 February 2006.This was about 12 years after world population reached 5 billion in 1987, and 6 years after world population reached 5.5 billion in 1993.

The gap between India, the country with the second largest population in the world and China, the country with the largest population in the world has narrowed from 238 million in 2001 to nearly 131 million in 2011.

Demography is the study of human population dynamics. Population density is a measure of the number of people per unit of area. Variants may express the population per unit of habitable, inhabited, productive ( or potentially productive ), or cultivated area. A particular geographic area of land is said to have a carrying capacity, representing the maximum population which it can support. Some observers of human societies believe that the concept of carrying capacity also applies to human population, and that unchecked population growth can result in a “Malthusian catastrophe”.

Population Growth 2011

Population growth increased significantly as the Industrial revolution gathered pace from 1700 onwards.
The gap between India, the country with the second largest population in the world and China, the country with the largest population in the world has narrowed from 238 million in 2001 to nearly 131 million in 2011.General Studies Question Bank CD

The last 50 years have seen a yet more rapid increase in the rate of population growth due to medical advances and substantial increases in agricultural productivity, particularly beginning in the 1960s, made by the Green Revolution. In 2007 the United Nations Population Division projected that the world’s population will likely surpass 10 billion in 2055.

Importance of Census of India

Census is the process of collecting, compiling, evaluating analyzing and publishing demographic, social and economic data, pertaining to specific point of time to all persons in a country. According to United Nations, the census of population is defined in United Nation document-Principles and Recommendations for National Population Censuses as “the total process of collecting, compiling and publishing demographic, economic and social data pertaining, at a specified time or times to all persons in a country or delimited territory.

The Indian Census is the most credible source of information on Demography ( Population characteristics ), Economic Activity, Literacy and Education, Housing & Household Amenities, Urbanisation, Fertility and Mortality, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, Language, Religion, Migration ,Disability and many other socio-cultural and demographic data since 1872. Census taking as an old tradition started from the Mauryan period. A systematic and modern population census was conducted non-synchronously between 1865 and 1872 in different parts of the country. The Indian Census has a rich tradition and enjoys the reputation of being one of the best in the world. The first Census in India was conducted in the year 1872.

This was conducted at different points of time in different parts of the country- In 1881 a Census was taken for the entire country simultaneously. Since then, Census has been conducted every ten years, without a break. Thus, the Census of India 2011 will be the fifteenth in this unbroken series since 1872 and the seventh after independence. The Government emphasized the importance of population data and set up a Population Data Committee in 1944 to examine and advise the Government of India on the available data relating to growth of population. This committee comprised of Mr. W.M. Yeatts, the Census Commissioner of India in 1941 as Chairman and Sir Theodore Gregory, Professor PC. Mahalnob is, Professor K.B. Madhava and Dr. K.C. K.E. Raja as members.

The Committee paid special emphasis to the statistical problems relating to the age tabulation of the 1941 census which could not be completed because of financial stringency caused by the Second World War, and also made recommendations for the use of sampling methods for the estimation of vital statistics rates. In particular, they pointed out the use which could be made of the household lists prepared at the census as a sampling frame for obtaining demographic data and recommended their safe keeping. The Health Survey and Development Committee popularly referred to as the Bhore Committee constituted for making plans for post – war developments in the health fields made a comprehensive review of the field of population from the quantitative and qualitative points of view.

It suggested the appointment of Registrar General of Vital and Population Statistics at the centre and Provincial Superintendents in the Provinces with a view to improve the quality of population statistics. The Census Act of 1948 was inserted in the schedule on 20th June, 1959.

The first census after Independence was taken in 1951. The report of 1951 census by the Census Commissioner for India was a complete departure from the pattern of previous census reports. This report attempted to interpret the past changes in the size and structure of India’s population and to point out their implications for the level of living of the population. The report also made a plea for a reduction in the birth rate of the country. The 1951 census also attempted for the first time in the history of Indian census to make an assessment of the accuracy of the census count by a re – check in the field.

The census is available on various subjects : Population, Economy, Finance, Literacy, Sex ratio etc. There are sub topics in each subject, which deed with specific issues of that subject. 1MR Rate, Birth Rate, death Rate in Population, Workers in Various sectors, Male Workers Female Workers, etc, in Economy, Female Literacy, Male Literacy in Literacy and so on.

The 2001 Census enumeration came to a close on the 5th March, 2001 all over the country. It is natural that everyone expects to know the population of the country soon after a Census is completed. But the magnitude of the task of tabulation the lakhs of Census schedules does not permit publication of detailed information on the population immediately. However, some quick tabulation and compilation of data was done and brief but important population data have been released to the public as an interim measure. The Enumerators were required to submit an abstract of the date collected by them in their respective enumeration blocks and these abstracts were consolidated and the important population data were compiled.

Though the Census Organization has a very detailed programme of publications carrying the variegated Census data incorporated in various publications, a small booklet like the present one giving the provisional results is customarily released immediately after the conclusion of the field work. The present publication, which is called “Paper 1 of 2001 Census – Provisional Population Totals” is the first in the series of publications. The other, publications giving detailed data will be released after the Census schedules are edited and tabulated.

General

  • The 1981 Census could not be held owing to disturbed conditions prevailing in Assam. Hence the population figures for 1981 of Assam have been worked out by interpolation9.
  • The 2991 Census was not held in Jammu & Kashmir. Hence the population figures for 1991 of Jammu & Kashmir have been worked out by ‘Interpolation’.
  • The distribution of population of Pondicherry ( Puducherry ) by sex for 1901 ( 246,354 ), and 1931 ( 258,628 ) and 1941 ( 285,011 ) is not available. The figures of India for these years are, therefore, exclusive of these population figures so far as distribution by sex is concerned.

  • Arunachal Pradesh was censused for the first time in 1961.
  • In 1951, Tuensang was censused for the first time for 129.5 sq. kms of areas only. In 1961 censused areas of Tuensang District of Nagaland was increased to 5356.1 sq. kms.
  • Due to non-availability of census data the figures for the decades, from 1901 to 1951 have been estimated for the districts of Kohima, Phek, Wokha, Zunheboto, and Mokokchung of Nagaland. Estimation however could not be done for Tuensang and Mon as they were not fully censused prior to 1961.
  • As the sex break – up for the districts.Sheopur, Morena, Bhind, Gwalior, Datia, Shivpuri, Guna, Ratlam, Ujjain, Shajapur, Dewas, Jhabua, Dhar, Indore, West Nimar ( khargone ), Barwani, Rajgarh, Bhopal, Sehore and Raisen is not available for the year 1901. Figures for males and females have been estimated for the year 1901 for Madhya Pradesh.
  • One village Ramtapur ( code No. 217 and 101 in 1951 and 1961 respectively ) of Jukka circle of Degulur taluka which was transferred under the state Reorganisation Act, 1956 from Mahar-ashtra to Andhra Pradesh, still continues in Nanded district of Maharashtra. The population of this village has, however, been adjusted in Nizamabad district for the year 1901 – 1951.
  • The names of Uttaranchal and Pondicherry have changed to Uttarakhand and Puducherry respectively after Census 2001.

Demographics of India Census 2011

India occupies 2.4% of the world’s land area and supports over 17.5% of the world’s population. India has more arable land area than any country except the United States, and more water area than any country except Canada and the United States. Indian life revolves mostly around agriculture and allied activities in small villages, where the overwhelming majority of Indians live. As per the 2001 census, 72.2% of the population lives in about 638,000 villages and the remaining 27.8%lives in more than 5,100 towns and over 380 urban agglomerations.

India is the second most populous country in the world, with over 1.21 billion people ( 2011 census ), more than a sixth of the world’s population. Already containing 17.5% of the world’s population, India is projected to be the world’s most populous country by 2025, surpassing China, its population exceeding 1.6 billion people by 2050. However, its population growth rate is only 1.41%, ranking 93rd in the world. India has more than 50% of its population below the age of 25 and more than 65% hovers below the age of 35. It is expected that, in 2020, the average age of an Indian will be 29 years, compared to 37 for China and – 48 for Japan; and, by 2030, India’s dependency ratio should be just over 0.4.
India has more than two thousand ethnic groups, and every major religion is represented, as are four major families of languages ( Indo – European, Dravidian, Austro – Asiatic and Tibeto – Burman languages ) as well as a language isolate ( the Nihali language spoken in parts of Maharashtra ).

India contains the majority of the world’s Zoroastrians, Sikhs, Hindu Jains and Bahai. India is also home to the third-largest Muslim population in the world after Indonesia and Pakistan. Religious majorities vary greatly among state. Jammu and Kashmir and Lakshadweep are Muslim majority states; Nagaland, Mizoram and Meghalaya are Christian majority; Punjab is Sikh majority. It is to be noted that while participants in the Indian census may choose not to declare their religion, there is no mechanism for a person to indicate that he / she does not adhere to any religion. Due to this limitation in the Indian census process, the data for persons not affiliated with any religion may not be accurate.
