Census Questionnaire
Foreword
The fifth population census was conducted over a period of five days starting at the zero hour of
15 March 2011 and completed on the 19 March 2011. Population census indeed is the only
recognized source in Bangladesh for quality benchmark database pertaining to population size
and its spatial distribution and for various basic demographic characteristics. Along with national
level aggregates, the census has generated detailed segregated data at community levels
(mahallas/mauzas/villages) of the country being a full-count statistical undertaking. The initiative of
publishing zila community reports has been undertaken considering the importance of community
level data and information apart from national level in the process of determining policy-strategy
and decision-making. The Dinajpur zila community report is one of those 64 “Community
Reports” at zila level.
The census results “at a glance” table for each upazila of Dinajpur zila have been presented in
this report. Tables containing various statistics separately by mahallas, mauzas and villages are
incorporated for readers' convenience. I believe that the wide array of census findings presented in
this zila community report will be useful to planners and policy makers in formulating,
implementing and evaluating responsive development plans and programmes for human resource
advancement and overall development. In addition, the census data and information of this report
will be helpful for researchers both at home and abroad.
Census is a massive operation. Its success depends on devoted endeavor of census workers and
also on participation of people at all levels. We gratefully acknowledge the active participation of all
government and private agencies, zila administrations, local governments at various levels
including Union Parisads, Upazila Parishads, Paurashavas, Media Groups of the country. Their
contribution and all-out support towards making the census a success will always be highly
appreciated. I express my gratitude to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), European
Union (EU), US Census Bureau and USAID for their financial and technical supports for
completing this huge task. I am grateful to the Cabinet Secretary and the Secretary, Ministry of
Public Administration for their active cooperation. I express my gratitude to the Honorable Minister,
Ministry of Planning for his proper guidance and active cooperation in making this census a
success.
ICR (Intelligent Character Recognition) machines and iCADE (Integrated Computer Assisted Data
Entry) system were used in capturing the census data. CSPro software was used in analyzing and
processing of data. It took almost six years to publish the final report of Population and Housing
Census 2001 and four years for 1991 Census following the enumeration. For Population and
Housing Census 2011, we had reduced the gap by publishing all reports including community and
zila reports within the shortest possible time. This is the first time in the census history of
Bangladesh that the census reports are being published within 15 months after the enumeration. I
express my thanks to the Director General, BBS, Project Director, Mr. Ashim Kumar Dey and all
those involved in the effort to finally bring the report out within the shortest time.

Preface
Bangladesh inherited the tradition of conducting the population census on decennial basis since
1872. The fifth population census of Bangladesh and fifteenth in the region, sequencing the
decennial periodicity, was conducted during March 15-19, 2011. The main objective of the census
was to collect information on the basic characteristics related to housing, households and
population for developing a comprehensive database for all development planning and human
resource development programmes as well as economic management.
As per decisions of the National Statistical Council (NSC), Population and Housing Census had
been conducted in three phases. In phase I, basic data about all households and individual
members of the households were gathered through using ICR formatted questionnaire during
March 15-19, 2011. In phase II, quality and coverage of the main count were verified through a
Post Enumeration Check (PEC) survey during April 10-14, 2011. For the first time in census
history of Bangladesh, the PEC was conducted by an independent organization,
Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies (BIDS). In phase III, detailed socio-economic
information was collected by adopting a long machine readable questionnaire in a sample survey
held during October 15-25, 2011.
Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) started the census preparatory activity from mid 2009 with
the updating of maps and area Geo-codes. Several preliminary checks of the questionnaire were
made locally. The census questionnaire was pre-tested in selected areas with participation of
some experts of the “Technical Committee”. Users’ and experts’ views were taken to finalize the
questionnaire. The census field operation and quality of census inputs were tested by two Zonal
operations. Accordingly the questionnaire was designed in machine readable format with
the technical assistance from US Census Bureau and was printed abroad with the
financial assistance from European Union (EU) through the United Nations Population
Fund (UNFPA).
To ensure coverage, effective management and close supervision, the entire country was divided
into 2,96,718 enumeration areas (EAs) by using enumeration maps. For every group of 6/7
enumerators there was one supervisor. The geo-coding system developed in the previous
censuses was checked, updated and computerized.
Modified Defacto Method was adopted in counting the population. Zero hour of the night of 15
March, 2011 was considered as the census moment. On the other hand, the hours between
census moment and the following morning (6.00 a.m.) i.e. morning of 15 March, 2011 was reconed
as the census night. To avoid omission and duplication, people were counted where they were
found in the census night.
For operational convenience all the available officers and staff members of BBS and other
organization were mobilized as follows:

For actual enumeration 2,96,718 enumerators and 48,531 supervisors were employed from
among the local educated unemployed persons of them 50% were females.
A verbatim training manual was prepared and used for imparting uniform training to all the census
workers. Audio-Visual training was imparted for the trainees for making uniformity all over the
country. Training was given at three levels:
(i) Training of Master Trainers (Census Zila Coordinators) at Dhaka;
(ii) Training of Zonal Officers at Zila levels and
(iii) Training of Supervisors and Enumerators at the local levels.
A calendar of census activities was developed and was adhered to strictly in providing training,
distribution of census materials, doing actual enumeration and returning all filled in questionnaire
to Dhaka head office census control room.
A Centralized Processing System was developed constituting the census analysis and report
writing team. Under the system, Computer editing, Data capture by ICR/iCADE and tabulation
through CSPro software were systematically linked.
For ensuring participation of local administration and local bodies in census work census
committees were formed at the Zila, Upazila, Paurashava and Union/Ward levels. In addition,
Enumerators and Supervisors were appointed from amongst the local educated unemployed
youths.
A Standing Technical Committee comprising of well-known local census experts and users of
census data was formed at national level to provide technical support to BBS in planning,
designing and executing the census. A seminar-cum-expert consultation was held at BBS with the
census data users, experts, researchers and educationist to get their views on finalization of
census questionnaire and policy related issues.
For creating public awareness and motivation a nation wide publicity campaign was carried out
before the census through posters, banners, leaflets, brochures, features film, zingle, miking,
radio, television, mobile message and newspaper.
I express my deepest gratitude to Secretary, Statistics and Informatics Division for her
wholehearted support and cooperation to the census.
I express my deep gratitude to all Standing Technical Committee members and also to all
participants of the Seminar-cum-Expert Consultation for their valuable contributions towards
finalizing the questionnaire and the census programme.
I am thankful to all members of the sub-committees on publicity, sampling and report writing for
their valuable contribution. I am also thankful to our mass media, local bodies and the people of all
level for their wholehearted supports to the census.
Finally, I thank the Project Director Mr. Ashim Kumar Dey and other officers and staff members of
Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics for their untiring efforts in making the census a success within a
very short period of time and in publication of this report.

CHAPTER – 1
Introduction
The population and housing census is the unique source of reliable and comprehensive
data about the size of the population of the country, major socio-economic and socio-demographic
characteristics.
It is the total process of collecting, compiling, evaluating, analyzing and publishing or otherwise
disseminating demographic, economic and social data pertaining, at a specified time, to all
persons in a country. The essential features of a population census are individual enumeration,
universality within a defined territory, simultaneity and defined periodicity.
The population and housing census provides information on the geographic and
administrative distribution of the population and household in addition to the demographic and
socioeconomic characteristics of all the people in the country. The data from the census are
classified, tabulated and disseminated so that political leaders, election officials, planners, national
organizations including NGOs and civil society, regional and international organizations can use
the data in decision-making.
The purpose of community report is to disseminate census data by communities
(ward/mahalla in urban area and union/mauza/village in rural area). Data on all key variables
namely area, household, population by sex and age group, ethnic population, literacy rate, marital
status, school attendance , employment status and religion as well as physical facilities such as
source of drinking water, sanitation, electricity and dwelling units have been presented in this
report. The planners, researchers and policy makers as well as development partners and
community administrators will find this report as a valuable reference for use in advising plans and
programs for advancing welfare and well-being of the common people, in particular and the
community in general.
Census and its Periodicity
Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics is in charge of conducting the Population and Housing
Census. The practice of census taking in the area, now Bangladesh, started in 1872. Thereafter,
another census was conducted in 1881 and from then on the decennial periodicity of census was
maintained with the exception of 1971 cycle which was held up and delayed till the year 1974
because of liberation war. The 1974 census was the first census in Bangladesh after her
emergence as a new independent nation in 1971. Bangladesh went back to the decennial
periodicity and held the second, third, and fourth censuses in the years 1981, 1991 and 2001. The
2011 census is the 5th after independence of Bangladesh.
Objectives: The population census was carried out to achieve the following objectives:
► To determine the population and the number of households of the country;
► To obtain data on demographic characteristics by gender;
► To obtain data on disability;
► To collect information on housing, household structure and other selected facilities;
►To generate data on gender specific occupation and participation in economic activities;
►To gather basic information on ethnic people and
► To prepare socio-economic database for policy makers, planners and researchers etc.
Census Phasing: The census data collection was completed in three phases.
Phase I - Main Count: Collection of basic information for all households and individuals
using an ICR formatted Questionnaire.
Phase II- Post Enumeration Check (PEC): A PEC survey was carried out to measure
quality and coverage of the main census count. The survey was conducted immediately after
receiving filled-in census questionnaires in Dhaka head office. For the first time in census history
of Bangladesh, the PEC was conducted by an independent organization, Bangladesh Institute of
Development Studies (BIDS).
Phase III- Sample Census: A sample census (large scale sample survey) was carried
out at the last phase. For this undertaking, ICR formatted long questionnaire was adopted to
supplement the data of the main census. Being a programme of much wider information coverage,
the sample census provided detailed data relating to population and household characteristics
including fertility, mortality, morbidity, migration etc.
Census Operation
Census Planning: The census preparatory work programme was mounted in mid 2009. A
census work-plan was prepared defining in details the activities to be performed and completed by
specific dates in each calendar year. Field instruction manual and training manual were produced
for census workers of different stages. These manuals provided precise guidelines regarding: (i)
duties and responsibilities to be performed at all levels, (ii) lessons to be given when imparting
trainings to field supervisors and enumerators, (iii) mapping and geo-coding operation to be done,
(iv) questionnaire to be filled-up, (v) enumeration and supervision disciplines to be adhered to, (vi)
census workers to be put in place (vii) census materials to be distributed and (viii) publicity plan to
be implemented.
Mapping
The updated and well furnished map is one of the basic instruments to the success of any
population and housing census. The primary objectives of the mapping operation is (i) to update
the produced GIS maps and delineate enumeration areas (EA) in the country to facilitate the
smooth counting of inhabitants during enumeration and (ii) fundamentally to ascertain that all
areas are covered and that everyone in the country is counted with minimal possibility of under or
over counting.
Household counting for EA demarcation and concurrent EA mapping activities were carried
out in two phases beginning from May, 2009. The First phase, confined to exclusively rural areas,
necessitated updating and preparing union, mauza, and control maps. The second phase was
initiated only for urban coverage in view of the complex task associated with household and EA
boundary identifications due to quite dense habitations in urban localities. All urban ward, mahalla,
and control maps were updated and/or newly prepared showing current boundaries. BBS used
GIS Maps for field operation for the first time in census history of Bangladesh. GIS Maps Project of
BBS produced the maps from aerial photography. The updated maps were used for zonal
operations. All maps were finally checked and updated during zonal operations. The updated EA
maps were used for main census, PEC and sample census.
Designing and Pre-testing of Questionnaire: The contents of census questionnaire were
determined based on data needs assessed on government current priorities and also
recommendations of technical committee experts. Several preliminary checks of the questionnaire
were made locally. Lastly, the questionnaire was pre-tested in selected areas with participation of
some experts of the technical committee. Satisfactory pre-test results were resolved finalising a
two moduled questionnaire for adoption in the census. Accordingly the questionnaire was
designed in machine readable format with the technical assistance from US Census Bureau and
was printed abroad with the financial assistance from European Union (EU) through United
Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
Questionnaire: A two moduled questionnaire was used for the main census. As many as 25
questions were included in it. Of them 11 questions relating to housing and household
characteristics were covered in household module. The remaining 14 questions focusing on
household individuals were incorporated in individual module. The questionnaire items were
identification, address of household, number and structure of house including tenancy, toilet
facility, access to electricity, ethnicity, individual age, sex, religion, marital status, literacy,
disability, education and working status. All data on the items were collected through visiting house
to house and interviewing head of the household or responsible member in absence of head of the
household.
Zonal Operation: Two zonal operations were executed in both urban and rural areas. These
operations allowed setting up a system germane to: (i) involve local people in the census, (ii)
interact with local bodies, and (iii) ensure efficient field work arrangements.
The first zonal operation was held during May-July 2010 in 3 (three) phases. In first phase
it covered 39 zilas, second phase 17 zilas and third phase 8 zilas. During first zonal operation the
following tasks were completed:
a) Updating geo-code list;
b) Updating Mauza and Mahalla maps with demarcation of EA boundaries;
c) Preparing Supervisor sketch maps;
d) Preparing primary list of local enumerators and supervisors with names and
addresses and
e) Identifying depopulated Mauzas and Mahallas
Besides, Zonal Officers introduced themselves to the public representatives of different bodies and
local administration and sought their support and cooperation in completing census activities
successfully.
The second zonal operation was mounted just three months prior, i.e. NovemberDecember 2010, to conduct the main census in March, 2011. This schedule ensured the smooth
flow of census activities including field management system.
The second zonal operation featured completing tasks such as:
(a) instituting census committees in zilas, upazilas/thanas, wards/unions, paurashavas and
city corporations,
(b) interacting with local bodies,
(c) verifying supervisor maps and getting those finalised,
(d) finalising the lists of supervisors and enumerators and
(e) checking and endorsing locations and available facilities of training centres selected to
train enumerators and supervisors. All these activities were performed by 2,612 Zonal Officers
under supervision of 130 Census Zila Coordinators who were engaged from BBS and other
ministries.
In forming EAs, the terrains and habitation patterns of localities were taken into
consideration. Mauza/Ward maps were used for exact identifications of EAs within mauzas and
wards. During census enumeration final base maps and supervisor maps were used by the zonal
officers, enumerators and supervisors for field control and overcoming coverage errors.
Organization: The lowest unit of census was enumeration area (EA). All over the country as
many as 2,96,718 EAs were delineated. Above them there were 48,531 supervisors’ areas (SAs)
with every SA having 6-7 EAs. For each EA one enumerator and each SA one supervisor were
appointed temporarily from amongst local educated youths. Females were given priority in
selecting enumerators and supervisors. Enumerators and supervisors were controlled by 2,612
Zonal Officers. Immediately above zonal officers there were 130 Census Zila Co-coordinators
deployed from Class-I officers of BBS and other ministries. The Project Director of Population and
Housing Census Project was the co-ordinator of field activities and maintained liaison with higher
authority and different organisations. The Director General of Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics
acted as the National Coordinator. The Secretary of Statistics and Informatics Division was the
Chief Census Coordinator who guided the whole system of census programme and
implementation.
The local administration and public representatives participated in the census through
census committees formed for City Corporations, Paurashavas, Zilas, Upazilas, Wards, and Union
Parisads. The Mayors of City Corporations and Paurashavas, Deputy Commissioners, Upazila
Chairmen, Ward Commissioners and Chairmen of Union Parishads headed respective census
committees with BBS officials being the Member-Secretaries.
Central census control room was established at Dhaka headquarters of BBS
(Parishankhan Bhaban) under active supervision of the Project Director. Similarly control rooms
were established in each spheres of administrative levels namely zila, upazila and union. These
control rooms functioned round the clock during entire field enumeration period. A number of
officials were engaged to provide logistics during census field activities, monitored constantly the
census performance, informed the National Coordinator and Chief Census Co-ordinator about
performance status and obtained their instructions for successful completion of the census.
Enumeration: The population across all over of the country was counted at a stretch in five days
from 15-19 March 2011 using machine readable questionnaires. The counting began at zero hour
of 15 March 2011. Floating people were counted from zero-hour till 6.00 am (the hours called
census night) at the places where they were detected passing the night. In case of households, on the
other hand, all members were enumerated in their residences. The modified de-facto method was
followed in counting, i.e. every person was counted at the place where he/she stayed in the census night
except the people on board and on duty, counted at their residence.
Data Capturing/Processing: The adoption of Intelligence Character Recognition (ICR)
strategy was planned for census data capturing. As such, ICR machines were procured. BBS had
gathered experience in OMR and OCR techniques data capturing from earlier censuses of 1981,
1991 and 2001. The ICR technology was introduced at this census in BBS. US Census Bureau
supported BBS in using CapturePro and iCADE (Integrated Computer Assisted Data Entry)
system for data capturing. For analyzing and tabulating census data CSPro software was used.
iCADE: Integrated Computer Assisted Data Entry provides digital images of respondent
questionnaires. Data is processed through OMR, OCR, and KFI, quality assurance, and
automated detailed tracking of each step in the process.
Steps:
1. Batching and Batch Identification: Completed Census Questionnaires are
batched for processing. An identifying batch cover sheet is created. Batch status
numbers are kept in the database along with other relevant metadata.
2. Scanning: Each page from the batched Census Questionnaires is scanned into a
TIFF Image. In each step status info is kept in the database.
3. Autoregistration: Autoregistration relates images to the Master Template, registers
Form barcodes, and reads checkboxes. There may be preliminary “mini” OCR
processing here. Autoregistration then creates a script with data captured so far.
4. Manual Registration: Images where auto-registration detected positional tolerance
errors are sent to a clerk, who resolves skewing and bar code issues and repairs
checkbox ambiguities. The OMR clerk examines all checkboxes.
5. Batch Completeness/Exception Review: Batch Completeness identifies batches
with problems, forms with missing, loose, or duplicate pages, batched not scanned,
scanned not batched. In Exception Review, the clerk researches each issue (checking
paper forms if needed) and takes appropriate action.
6. OCR Review: Converts designated handwritten and printed text fields to electronic
data, with greater than 99% accuracy for numbers. A clerk then reviews OCR results,
verifying all 1s, 2s, etc. Any rejected field must be reprocessed using KFI.
7. Key From Image (KFI): The OMR portion of the program will capture check box data
prior to KFI. KFI technology guides a keying clerk to the write-in fields on the form
where the system detects presence. Furthermore, a keyer will not be taken to any fields
already read by the OCR engine. Keyers may also re-register skewed pages or correct
checkbox answers.
8. Quality Assurance (QA): Two samples are drawn, one from the OCR read
“universe” and one from the KFI keyed-in “universe”. They are sent to an independent
keyer to be rekeyed. OCR and KFI may have different sampling rates and different
accept/reject quality rates. These results are then verified against the earlier captured
data, and discrepancies are presented and corrected by analysts.
9. Sample Verification, Classification and Adjudication: A sample of the fields is
keyed in by an independent verifier. A classifier reviews images and data from
OCR/KFI and compares with verifier’s data. An adjudicator determines final truth and
decides if the batch is acceptable, and determines the cause of discrepancies, which
may be charged against the original keyer.
10. Remainder Verifier, Classifier and Adjudicator: If batch quality for either
universe is unacceptable, all remaining fields are rekeyed by a verifier, and results are
compared and corrected by a classifier, and adjudicated by a final adjudicator.
All records were subject to an efficient computer edit and imputation programme. The errors and
inconsistencies, if detected, were imputed by applying both 'hot-deck' and 'cold-deck' methods.
For all zilas, separate files were maintained. The census tabulation plan was finalised through
technical committee recommendations admitted of options for comparing most of the individual
cells with 2001 census results. The tabulation programme was developed in CSPro and thoroughly
tested before adopting for census tabulation. All tables generated were transferred to MS
Excel/MS Word format for ensuring correct headings and footnotes.
Publication: The census reports to be published will provide population information at the
national, zila and community levels. Besides the Community Reports, National, Analytical, Zila
Reports, Socio- economic & Demographic Report, Administrative Report and some Thematic Area
Reports will be published during the coming months.
Post Enumeration Check (PEC): To assess coverage of the census an effectively designed
Post Enumeration Check (PEC) survey was conducted just a month after completing the census.
Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies (BIDS) conducted the PEC survey. The PEC survey
data were collected during 10-14 April 2011. The net under coverage rates estimated separately
for national level aggregate and also for rural, urban, other urban (Upazila Headquarters) and City
Corporation areas are given below:

Chapter -2
Concepts and Definitions:
The concepts and definitions adopted for the census and those presented in this report are as
follows:
2.1 Census Moment
It is the precise time hour fixed for starting up census enumeration nationwide. In the census the
zero hour of 15 March 2011 was the census moment.
2.2 Census Night
The time span from census moment to 6:00 am of 15 March 2011 was the census night.
2.3 Census Period
It denotes the days devoted to complete the census enumeration activities. In this census 15-19
March 2011 made up the census period.
2.4 Reference period
It is reference time cut off to which particular sets of census date items relate. In this census two
reference periods were used. These are:
i)
Field of Economic Activity: One week preceding census moment (8 to 14 March
2011)
ii)
For other variables: Census night.
2.5 Modified De-facto Method
It means the system of enumerating people at places of their stay in the census night. Adhering to
this method the counting of floating population across the country was completed during census
night by interviewing them just at places of their night stay except the people on duty or on board.
The remaining vast number of people found in usual residences were counted (including people
on duty or on board) during 5 (five) days census period by fixing places of their stay during census
night.
2.6 Floating Population
People detected passing the census night at railway stations, launch ghats, bus terminals, boats,
temples, pagodas, mosques, hotels (boarders), footpaths, under building-stairs,
overpass/underpass and some other unusual places. Also the people who were fishing at deep
sea and hiving in the forest especially in the Sundarbans were treated as floating population.
2.7 Household
Persons, either related or unrelated, living together and taking food from the same kitchen
constitute a household. A single person living and eating alone forms one-person household.
Households are classified into three groups as defined below:
i)
General (dwelling) Household: Includes all households having usual dwelling
places. In 2001 census it was used as dwelling household.
ii)
Institutional Household: Hospitals, clinics, jails, barracks, orphanages,
hostels/halls of educational institutions etc. were treated as Institutional
Households.
iii)
Other Household: Includes those households other than general and institutional
found in census night such as messes, shops, offices etc.
2.8 Ownership and Tenancy of Dwelling Unit
Tenancy status of dwelling units distinguishes the following three classes:
i)
Owner: Dwelling unit found occupied and used by household owning it.
ii)
Rented: Dwelling unit found occupied and used under arrangement of contractually
rented.
iii)
Rent free: Dwelling unit found occupied and used without rent.
2.9 Literacy
It denotes ability to write a letter in any language. Literacy status assessment is made for
population 7 years and over, 15 years and over, and also for population of all ages.
2.10
Community
It refers to the following five lower geographic, administrative or revenue units:
i)
Union: Smallest administrative rural geographic unit comprising of mauzas and
villages and having union parishad institution.
ii)
Mauza: Smallest revenue geographic unit having Jurisdiction List (JL) number.
iii)
Village: Lowest rural geographic unit either equivalent to a mauza or part of a
mauza.
iv)
Ward: Smallest administrative urban geographic unit comprising of mahallas and
having ward council institution.
v)
Mahalla: Lowest urban geographic unit having identifiable boundaries.
2.11
Urban Area
It corresponds with area developed around a central place having such amenities as metalled
roads, improved communication, electricity, gas, water supply, sewerage, sanitation and also
having comparatively higher density of population with majority population in non-agriculture
occupations.
i)
City Corporation: It includes city corporation area declared by the Ministry of Local
Government.
ii)
Paurashava/Municipality Area (PSA): It includes paurashavas incorporated and
administered by local government under Paurashava Ordinance, 1977.
iii)
Other Urban Area (OUA): It includes those upazila headquarters which are not
paurashavas. The only exception is the 17 unions adjacent to Dhaka City
Corporation under Dhaka Metropolitan Area. These unions are treated as other
urban areas on the basis of their urban characteristics.

About Dinajpur Zila
Background, Geographic Area and Location: The area now constituting Dinajpur zila became a
subdivision of Dinajpur zila in 1860. It was up-graded to a zila in 1984. There are different views about the
origin of the zila name. It is generally believed that Raja Ganesh, the chiefstain of North Bengal, became the
king of Gaur in the earlly part of 15th Century A.D. and assumed the title of Danujamardanadeva. Before
ascending the throne he used to rule this area from the present zila headquartters, in consequencece of
which the township was named as Danujpur. Probably the area was renamed as Dinajpur by rthe East India
Company when it became a zila in 1786. The zila is bounded on the north by Panchagarh and Thakurgaon
zilas, on the south by Gaibandha and Joypurhat zilas and India, and on the west by Thakurgaon zila and
India. The total area of the zila is 3444.30 sq.km (1329.85 sq. miles) of which 78.87 sq. km (30.45 sq. miles)
is under forest. It lies between 25º10' and 26º04' north latitudes and between 88º23' and 89º18' east
longitudes.
Annual Average Temperature: Maximum 33.5oC and lowest 10.5oC; annual rainfall 2536 mm.
Main Rivers: DHEPA, PUNARBHABA, Kanchan and ATRAI.
Administration: Dinajpur zila was established in 1786. Its previous name was Ghoraghat zila. Various parts
of the zilas were included in Purnia, Rangpur and Rajshahi zilas at different times during 1833 to 1870.
Thakurgaon and Panchagarh Sub-divisions of this zila were turned into independent zilas in 1984. The zila
consists of 13 upazilas, 101 unions, 1926 mauzas, 2131 villages, 8 Paurashavas, 75 wards and 246
Mahallas. The Upazilas are BIRAMPUR, BIRGANJ, BIRAL, BOCHAGANJ, CHIRIRBANDAR, FULBARI, GHORAGHAT,
HAKIMPUR, KAHAROLE, KHANSAMA, DINAJPUR SADAR, NAWABGANJ, PARBATIPUR.

the tombs of Chehel Gazi and Gora Shahid, Sitar Kuthuri, Habra Zamindar Bari, Gour Gabindha, Baraduari,
Shingha Darwaza Palace, NAYABAD MOSQUE, Aowkar Mosque.
Historical Events: Dinajpur was once a part of the ancient state of Pundrabardhwan. The British
administrative control in Dinajpur was established in 1793. At the time of Partition of Bengal in 1947, part of
greater Dinajpur zila was included in West Bengal and it was named West Dinajpur. People of the zila took
part in the Tebhaga Movement and also had significant contribution in the War of Liberation.

extinct or nearly extinct.
Mineral Resources: Coal mine at Barapukuria and hard rock mine at Madhyapara.
Main Export Items: Paddy, rice, wheat, sugarcane, mango, lichi, jackfruit and molasses.
Census Administration: For census operations Dinajpur zila was divided into 2 census zilas, 6498 EAs
(Enumeration Area), 955 SAs (Supervisors' Area) and 57 Zones. Each zone consisted of about 100
enumeration areas. The large mauzas/villages were divided into two or more enumeration areas and small
mauzas/villages were merged to form an enumeration area consisting of about 120 households, keeping in
view the terrain and habitation pattern of the locality.

Background: Birampur came into existence on 17 June, 1981. Nothing is definitely known about
the origin of the upazila name. There are two different opinions in this respect. One is that the area
now comprising Birampur was named after the name of Boiram Khan, the caretaker of the great
Mughal Emperor Akbar and the other opinion is that the place is named Birampur after the name
of the Birampur Fort, built by the king Patar Das at Durgapur mauza in the upazila. However, the
earlier opinion is generally believed to all.
Area and Location: The upazila occupies an area of 212.88 sq. km. including 9.12 sq. km.
forest area. It is located between 25°18' and 25°29' north latitudes and between 88°50' and
89°05' east longitudes. The upazila is bounded on the north by Phulbari upazila, on the east by
Nawabganj upazila, on the south by Hakimpur upazila and on the west by India.
