Second and Third Release from the Second Population Census of Pakistan, 1961

M. Sanauixah


This brief review of the second1 and third2 census bulletins
from the 1961 census of Pakistan is second in a series3 of review
articles by the Demographic Section of the Institute of Development
Economics on the census publications. This review is really a supplement
to the first in so far as the second and third bulletins are, by and
large, final confirmations of the first bulletin, though the third
bulletin also provides a long series of detailed figures for small
areas. The second census bulletin gives the final results of some of the
information collected during the 1961 census, the provisional summaries
of which were published in the first bulletin. It, however, does not
reproduce the literacy, houses and household data and some of the urban
information from the first bulletin. Instead, it provides some
additional information on population by rural-urban and religious
classifications. Besides, the second release contains statistical notes
on (a) growth of population, (b) rural and urban growth of population,
and (c) religion. These differences between the two successive census
bulletins are important and the additional information returned will
form the subject matter of discussion in this article.
