Populatoin and demographic data: A profile of India’s publication programme

Before solutions to population problems can be formulated and implemented, planners and policy-makers must have access to population information and database analysis. In the Asian and Pacific region, India has long been active in providing such data and information through various publications. From 1872 until 1941, data relating to population were printed in a separate volume for each of India’s States or provinces and princely States etc. Each of the volumes was preceeded by an analytical report. Thus, there were generally two volumes on a particular State or province, giving complete information pertaining to the population census. In addition, a number of volumes were also published relating to ancillary studies which have traditionally been a part of India’s population censuses.
