Demography studies the size, composition, distribution and dynamics of population. In combination with social statistics, it seeks to find solutions to problems that arise from the interface between population and socio-economic, political and development factors. It applies statistical methods to demographic data and evaluates population policies and programmes for sustainable development. The general philosophy of the discipline is to produce graduates who have broad and deep knowledge of the field of Demography and Social Statistics and who can effectively and meaningfully contribute to population, manpower and sustainable development of the nation and beyond specific objectives.
