Population

The table presents number of researchers per million people and population figures for select countries. The data are taken from the UNESCO, World Bank and DST, New Delhi.
The requirement of infrastructure is calculated using the prescribed norms on the basis of provisional rural population from Census, 2011 and estimated rural tribal population in 2011 using percentage of tribal population out of rural population. All India shortfall is derived by adding state-wise figures of shortfall ignoring the existing surplus in some of the states.
This statement gives state-wise information on key indicators relating to Population, fertility, mortality and current use of family planning methods.
Total Fertility Rate may be defined as average number of children that would be born to a woman if she experiences the current fertility pattern throughout her reproductive span (15-49 years). The total fertility rate is a more direct measure of the level of fertility than the birth rate, since it refers to births per woman. This indicator shows the potential for population change in a country. A TFR of 2.1 i.e., two children per women is considered the replacement rate for a population, resulting in relative stability in terms of total population numbers.
The Crude Death Rate (CDR) indicates the number of deaths occurring during the year, per 1,000 population estimated at midyear. Subtracting the Crude Death Rate from the Crude Birth Rate provides the rate of natural increase, which is equal to the rate of population change in the absence of migration. Primary source of data for births and deaths is the registration of births and deaths under Civil Registration System (CRS) of the Office of Registrar General, India (ORGI).
The Crude Birth Rate (CBR) is defined as the number of live births per thousand population. It is usually the dominant factor in determining the rate of population growth. Primary source of data for births and deaths is the registration of births and deaths under Civil Registration System (CRS) of the Office of Registrar General, India (ORGI). Since the reporting of births under CRS is not complete, ORGI estates CBR annually through Sample Registration System, a large scale demographic Survey Conducted by them.
The requirement of infrastructure is calculated using the prescribed norms on the basis of provisional rural population from Census, 2011 and estimated rural tribal population in 2011 using percentage of tribal population out of rural population in 2001. All India shortfall is derived by adding state-wise figures of shortfall ignoring the existing surplus in some of the states.
The data refers to latest quarterly estimates of Gross Domestic Product, Final Consumption Expenditure and other macro economic aggregates at constant prices.
