Excerpt from Census of India 1911, Vol. 21: Mysore”The population Census is used by the financier, the legislator, the merchant, and the commercial traveller; political economists turn to it for light on the development of industry, and on the change or numbers in each trade; those interested in social questions will study the ages and sex distribution in various districts or occupations; the sociologist and the biologist will need accurate information as to the growth of population and the change of age distribution.” (Bowley’s Elements of Statistics, p. 74.)The last four have been synchronous with the Censuses taken in British India. As to the first, the date of the Census taken in the Madras Presidency was loth November 1871 and that in the Bombay Presidency was 21st February 1872. In selecting the 10th March 1911 for taking the Census, the circumstances that influenced the decision were that on that night there was enough moonlight for the enumerators to finish their rounds before midnight and that on that date fewer fairs and festivals fell which would take the people away from their homes.2. The boundaries of the State remained unchanged since 1901. The variation in the recorded area is due to more correct measurements during the resurvey operations. There was, however, slight internal redistribution of tracts from one district to another which has been taken into account for purposes of comparison between decade and decade. The areas of districts, taluks and other tracts given in Part II-Tables-are based on the figures embodied in the ” Season and Crop Report” for 1008-00.3. The Census on the present occasion was taken on lines similar to those of 1901. A full account of the method and the machinery adopted for the taking of the Census has been given in a separate Volume of Administrative Report. A brief summary is, however, given below of the salient features connected with the operations.4. File first step in pre-census work was taken by the Government ordering the preparation of a list of all villages in the State in the prescribed form to facilitate the formation of Census divisions.5. As in 1901, the instructions for the taking of the Census were issued in the form of a code with a view to simplify correspondence, to facilitate the communication of additions and corrections and finally to place on record for future use the procedure followed on the present occasion.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
