Results are presented of an analysis of a five percent sample of data from the 1981 census of India undertaken in order to estimate vital rates for the period 1971-1981. The methodology used to estimate life expectancy at birth and the crude death rate is first described. Separate chapters are then devoted to estimates of child mortality and fertility. The vital rates are presented separately for the 14 major states as well as for the country as a whole. The results indicate that the decline in the birth rate that has occurred has been balanced by a similar decline in the death rate.
