Dip in population raises concern: Demographers

Even while the country's population is growing at fast pace, the 2011 census reveals that the population growth of the state is very low and it is negative in two districts. While the rate of population growth in four districts is very low, eight districts registered only nominal growth. "Given the slow pace of population growth, the state may register negative growth in the next two or three decades.
According to the census, the general fertility in Kerala is 1.8 which means that many of the couples have only one child," said Irudayarajan, professor, Centre for Development Studies(CDS).
