Chart of the Day: India’s Population And Per Capita Income

Today’s chart borrows data from the awesome RBI Handbook of Statistics, released yesterday. We take a look at our population growth over the years (As of 2011) with the per capita income growth since 1953.

Population Growth And Per Capita Income


  • Not normalized for inflation
  • Per capita GNP in 2011: Rs. 54,835
  • Population in 2011: 1,186 million.

While this is a “Chart of the day”, I’m adding more “interactive” charts so you can actually see data points by hovering your mouse over them. (Apologies for the different scales – limitation of my knowledge of the Google charts API, which will be fixed momentarily)

Enjoy. Let me know what you think.
