Notes:

1. India and Manipur figures include estimated figures for those of the three sub-divisions viz. Mao Maram, Paomata
and Purul of Senapati district of Manipur as census results of 2001 in these three sub-divisions were cancelled due to
technical and administrative reasors.
2. The 1991 Census could not be held owing to disturbed conditions prevailing in Jammu & Kashmir. Hence the
decadal growth rates for 1991-2001 are based on the interpolated population figures of 1991 for Jammu & Kashmir.
3. The 1981 census could not be held in Assam. Hence the decadal growth rates for 1981-1991 are based on the
interpolated population figures of 1981 for Assam.
