Geography

The tributaries of the Brahmaputra, the Nona, Buradia, Pagaldia, Borolia and Tihu, which originate in the foothills of the Himalayan Range, are wild in nature and make an enormous contribution to the agrarian economy of the district.

Economy

This district has tremendous potential to be transformed into one of the major districts of Assam, but due to various unavoidable factors this has not happened so far. This district has only three tea plantations s which is really a very small figure when compared to the other districts of upper Assam. There are almost 80,000 unemployed youth in this district as of 31 December 2000.

According to the 2011 census Nalbari district has a population of 769,919,[4] roughly equal to the nation of Djibouti[5] or the US state of Alaska.[6] This gives it a ranking of 488th in India (out of a total of 640).[4] The district has a population density of 763 inhabitants per square kilometre (1,980 /sq mi) .[4] Its population growth rate over the decade 2001-2011 was 11.74 %.[4] Nalbari has a sex ratio of 945 females for every 1000 males,[4] and a literacy rate of 79.89 %.[4]
