Population Dynamics and Economic Development
Population, it needs no saying, is always an Integral part of socio-economic development of a state/country. Unlike other developed states of the country, study on population dynamics and its role vis-a-vis socio-economic development in Manipur is very rare and scantily treated. This book, a pioneering attempt examines on the basis of primary data the crucial role and the importance of socio-economic and demographic factors influencing the fertility and mortality behaviour of the married couple. Using statistical techniques, this study establishes the hitherto little known fact that the attitudes of the couple towards marriage and reproduction have a direct bearing on the fertility and mortality behaviour irrespective of the socio-economic environment of the couple. This book, a must for any student of population studies, policy makers and planners, amply brings out the correlation between demographic and economic factors vis-a-vis economic development of Manipur. Not only the book reveals but establishes very clearly the high correlation between economic development and population dynamics.
