Population & demography

The planning Commission envisaged control of population growth rate through Five Year Plans in India. How far this objective materialized, has been examined in this book having separate chapter on

(1) Fertility (its inter-state scenario in the Sixties and in the Nineties),
(2) Differentials of fertility and
(3) Family welfare (plans and achievements). Household sample survey data as collected by the Indian statistical Institute, Calcutta through the National Sample Survey (NSS) in the Sixties, those by the Registrar General of India through the Sample Registration Scheme (SRS) and those by the International Institute for Population Sciences, Mumbai through the National Family Health Survey (NFHS) in the nineties have been utilized in this book. Quality of household survey data collected by 3 eminent organizations of India have been examined critically in this book which is expected to be very useful to scholars working in the evaluation of programmes and performances in controlling the population growth rate of India.
