The population growth rate has affected the quality of life of the people. The citizens, while in educational institutions, should understand various issues related to the population problem.
This book covers the need to study population dynamics and its utility to prospective educators. Sex education, family planning and their relation with the population are discussed. It highlights the fact that population growth and economic-cum-human development of a country act and react to each other and in this race the latter is always the loser. Facts and figures of Census of India 2001 and Population Policy of India 2001 have been analysed.
The book should be useful to several sections of the society interested in population dynamics and development on account of its wide coverage and update data.
