This book deals with the demographic and social transformation in the state of Jammu and Kashmir after 1947. While demographic transformation in the state reflects the changes in population aggregates, size and composition and other aspects, different trends of migration such as 'the migration of Pandits ' and 'labourmigration ' represent the process. On the other hand, the related social transformation reveals the overall social structure, function and social relationships and emerging social problems. Dealing with the major and minor trends of migration in J&K, which had solid social repercussions for the whole society, it examines the patters of population change as was revealed in decadal census reports from 1951 – 2011. This is primarily a sociological presentation of census-based population changes. Finally, it analyzes the broader sociological implications of population changes and migration trends. The important areas in this regard have been identified as late marriage, increasing suicides, rising number of never married, increasing crime and domestic violence, Pandit migration and labour migration.Printed Pages: 254.
