Which states of India have high density of population and why? Suggest ways and means to check it.


Bihar (1102), West Bengal (1029), Kerala (859), Uttar Pradesh (828) are states with high density of population because of favourable climatic conditions, rich fertile soil, well developed agriculture and a high level of industrialisation.

Some ways to check the population are:

  • Minimum age of marriage norms must be strictly followed.
  • Family planning must be encouraged; people must be made aware of different methods of birth control.
  • Female literacy rate and education must be increased because educated people have a better outlook towards family size.
