Migration Trends and Population Changes in Jammu and Kashmir State

B.A. Dabla (Author)

The book is concerned with the demographic and social transformation in Jammu and Kashmir after 1947. It views the patterns of population change as revealed in decadal census reports from 1951 to 2011, the changes as reflected in the total numbers, male-female ratio, and rural-urban composition, age, income and literary status of the population. It delves into the major and minor trends of migration relating to the emigration of the Kahsmiri pandits in early 1990s and labour migration from the 1970s. It examines how the immigration has had a social impact on women. It analyses the broader sociological implication of population changes and migration trends such as concerning marriage, increasing suicides, the unmarried, disability and its rehabilitation, and increase in crime and domestic violence.
