The Zomi Population

It is difficult to ascertain the exact population of the Zomi, because their ancestral land, by the stroke of a pen, was carved up into three different political units. However, on the basis of the 2001 Census of India, and available Census reports of Bangladesh and Burma, Zomi population can be estimated at around 9-10 million. Dr. Vumson, in his book, “Zo History”, which was written in 1986, estimates thus:

‘There are currently about two and a half million Zomi…. about half of them live in India and the other half in Burma and Bangladesh…..’
