This volume describes a field study of population dynamics conducted in rural India between 1953 and 1959 and presents selected findings from a 1969 follow-up investigation. The aim of the study, which was motivated by the realization that rapid population growth was becoming a world health hazard, was to trace the changes in the size of a population (due to births, deaths, and migrations) and in its environment as they affect community health and social well-being. Included in the text are numerous photographs, charts, graphs, tables, and regional maps.
