The year 1921 is a year of the great divide in the demographic history of India when mortality started to decline leading to acceleration in the rate of population growth.

It is second stage(1921-1951)of indian demography in which main reason of increase in population is due to decrease in death -rate but birth -rate is still constant due to control of drought and epedemics.
Year 1921 is well known as Great Divide Year.

The year 1921 is called a Great Divide in the demographic history of India because it is the only census year when there was decline{decrease} in growth of population. After 1921, there has been a trend of continuous rise in population.

I agree with Rohit that 1921 is only year when there was decrease in Indian population based on decade census. Since then there has been continuous rapid growth in population. That's why 1921 is called year of great divide in demographic history of India. After 1951, growth rate has been very high which has started a declining trend 1981 onwards.

The year 1921 is a year of the great divide in the demographic history of India when mortality started to decline leading to acceleration in the rate of population growth. During the next three decades (1921-51) the rate of population growth continued at a level of over one per cent per annum. The slight dip in the growth rate in 1941-51 partly reflects the Bengal famine of 1942-43 and dislocation - due to the partition of India in 1947.

The year 1921 is taken as the demographic divide for the reason that before this year, the population was not stable, sometimes it increased and at other times it decreased.

The growth rate of population was generally low before 1921. But after this year, there has been considerable and continuous increase in the population.

Between 1901 and 1911, the total increase in population was 5.9% and between 1911 and 1921, there was a decrease of 0.39%. In the decade of 1921-1931, the increase was 11.1%, from 1931 to 1941, it was 14.00% and during 1941-1951, it was 13.5%. It is going increasingly since then. Hence the year 1921 is rightly called the demographic divide.

No, The the decline in population rate of 0.39% is correct and sufficient for 1921 to be a great divine.
