The Census Commissioner, India on 30th January 2002 released data on classification of population by workers and non-workers based on provisional results of Census of India 2001. The data also gives distribution of workers by four-fold industrial category, viz., cultivators, agricultural labourers, household industries and other workers for each state and union territory. The data pertains to each state and union territory and by rural and urban areas of residence. With this the first phase of basic data release based on the provisional results of Census of India 2001 is complete.            Data Analysis              See Tables

While releasing data on Rural Urban Distribution of Population as per the provisional results of the Census of India 2001, list of 384 Urban Agglomerations, 5,161 Towns including Statutory Towns and Census Towns in India were made available. Now the Census has released the complete list of constituents of each Urban Agglomeration (i.e., Towns, Municipality, Notified Area Committee (NAC), Town Committee (TC), Outgrowth (OG), etc). This would help the data users to study the population characteristics of the constituents of each Urban Agglomeration separately.

As per the Census of India 2001 there are 6,38,365 villages in India including the uninhabited villages. Census has released data on number of villages in each state/union territory in India at the time of 2001 Census. The Statement also gives the number of villages at the time of 1991 Census as well for comparison. The actual list of villages will be made available at the Census of India website shortly.

ESCAP Evaluation of Census / Statistical Websites:

A 'Technological overview of statistical web sites in Asia and the Pacific' found the Census of India website to be third fastest in average response time among the 33 national statistical websites hosted by the ESCAP regional and associate members. In May-June 2001, an experimental test was conducted to compare how fast individual web sites responded to a series of ping requests. Web site hosted by National Statistical Office, Thailand (http://www.nso.go.th) was found to be the fastest followed by Bureau of Statistics, Fiji (http://www.statsfiji.gov.fj).
