The newly formed state of Chhattisgarh is densely populated with one hundred and fifty four persons per square kilometer. The four important districts of Raipur, Durg, Surguja and Bilaspur support maximum population of the state.

The rural areas of Chhattisgarh are more populated than the urban areas. However in the recent years, most of the population of rural Chhattisgarh migrated to the urban areas in search of better jobs and higher standards of living. Most of the districts of Chhattisgarh depend on agriculture because of low level of industrialization. The districts of Bilaspur and Rajnandgaon have the lowest urban population of only six percent.

Comprising mostly of backward castes, the state has a huge population of more than 57 lakhs of Schedule Tribes (as per the 1991 census) who inhabit the rural areas of the districts and depend on traditional form of occupations to earn their living.

According to the census data of 2001, Chhattisgarh has a sex ratio of nine hundred and ninety. The term sex ratio means number of females per males of a particular area or region. Chhattisgarh boasts of a higher sex ratio as compared to the other states of India.

Chhattisgarh is the natural home to most of the primitive tribes of India. The state has a higher concentration of Gond tribes. The indigenous tribe of Gond inhabits the hilly region of Chhattisgarh.

The equal distribution of Chhattisgarh population is necessary for the proper and sustained development of the state.
