Abstract:
In terms of sociology, population is a collection of human beings. So, population was one of the most vital contributory factors in the early development of western countries. India is the second largest country in the world in perspective of population having 2.4% of global land and 17.5% of the world's total population. Rapid population growth of India results in prevailing high birth rates and a large decline in the death rate in our country. Sudden increasing population and continuous economic development also caused serious environmental degradation in India. Population studies has therefore, been an important subject area of discussion in our country. Now population phenomenon entered into the Indian syllabus as a separate discipline, 'population education'. Education plays a pivotal role to control the population growth in our country. Population education aims at assisting the individual to understand the causes and consequences of population phenomena. Thus the present paper deals with general analysis of causes and impact of population growth in India.
