PROVISIONAL POPULATION TOTALS 2001
 
  INTRODUCTION
 


Census of India 2001 is the 14th Census in its unbroken series, 6th after independence, (5th in case of Assam as the Census in 1981 could not be conducted in the State due to the then prevailing situation). This is also the 1st Census of the 21st century and the 3rd millennium.

Census in India is conducted in two phases viz. Housenumbering and Houselisting operations and population enumeration. Housenumbering and Houselisting operations was conducted in the month of May, 2000 in the State. The period of this operation varies form State to state as the same is conveniently conducted in consultation with the state Govt.

The Census of India 2001 was conducted during 9th to 28th Feb., 2001 with reference to 00 hrs. of 1st March, 2001. The houseless population was enumerated on the night 0f 28th Feb. 2001 by each enumerator within his or her jurisdiction. A revisional round was taken up from 1st to 5th March, 2001 with a view to up-date the entry by way of addition and deletion in respect of births and deaths which may have occurred subsequent to the earlier visit of the enumerator to such households but before the reference moment.

It has been the tradition of the Indian Census to bring out the Provisional Population Totals immediately after the conclusion of the population enumeration. Therefore Indian Census has earned a great fame for releasing the provisional population totals in such a shortest possible time. However, this is not a very easy task. It requires meticulous planning and a well drilled census machinery fully geared up for the purpose. The programme was drawn up to have the provisional population totals at the sate level by 9th March, 2001 for onward transmission of the same to the Registrar General and Census Commissioner, India by 10th March, 2001.

In the present paper an attempt has been made to show the distribution of population, decadal variation of population, sex ratio with its variation since 1901, density of population and literacy rate etc. In addition to the maps showing the administrative division of the state along the pictorial representation of above data are given. Various kinds of charts and diagrams on the above themes are also shown in this paper.
