Discuss the major components of population growth.


SOLUTION
The major components of population growth are Birth Rate , Death Rate and Migration. Birth rate is the number of live births per thousand persons in a year. It is a major component of growth because in India , birth rates have always been higher than death rates. Death rate is the number of deaths per thousand persons in a year and Migration is the movement of people across regions and territories. Migration can be internal or international.

Migration plays a very significant role in changing the composition and distribution of population.
