Key Bihar Statistics

While reading Preeti Mehta’s article “Tales of a Neglected Hinterland” I saw some general demographical statistics and hence decided to explore some more statistics and the findings were interesting.
·         Out of a total area of 94,163 Sq Kms only 1.16% area is urban while the rest is rural.
·         There is one police station for every 110 Sq km area and 1,21,694 people.
·         There are 52.1 % males to 47.9% females i.e. 916 females for every 1000 males . In the age group of 0-6 the statistics seem to be a little better: There are 51.7% males to 48.3% females



Location


Bihar is located in the eastern part of the country (between 83°-30' to 88°-00' longitude). It is an entirely land–locked state, although the outlet to the sea through the port of Kolkata is not far away. Bihar lies mid-way between the humid West Bengal in the east and the sub humid Uttar Pradesh in the west which provides it with a transitional position in respect of climate, economy and culture. It is bounded by Nepal in the north and by Jharkhand in the south. The Bihar plain is divided into two unequal halves by the river Ganga which flows through the middle from west to east.

  5. This Site is full of information and statistical data. A few words to say to the People of BIHAR. People should focus more on development than politics. Land disputes and constant leg-pulling and back stabbing each other will not help. We are responsible for our own fall.

    The current trend of political stability and economic spur will have to last at least 10 years more ie... till 2022. Only then will this spurt mean anything and BIHAR will Rise.

    BIHAR Needs NITISH Jee.
