Year of Great Divide for Population Growth in India
This can be attributed to the rise of incurable diseases and limited medical support as well as the lack of proper postpartum care for mother and child. There were also natural calamities like the famine which made the situation worse.
The year 1921 is known as the demographic split because before this year, the population was not stable, sometimes it increased and sometimes it decreased.
- Between 1901 and 1911, the total increase in population was 5.9% which decreased by 0.39% between 1911 and 1921.
- Before 1921 the growth rate of the population was low.
- However, this year saw a sudden increase in population which was quiet and steady.
- There was an increase of 11.1% in the decade 1921–1931.
- Between 1931 and 1941, there was an increase of 14.00% and during 1941–1951 it was 13.5%.
- Since then it has continued to grow. Therefore, the year 1921 is rightly called the Year of the Demographic Divide or the Great Divide.
