This false color map shows the distribution of human population on the Indian sub-continent south of the Himalayas. Reds indicate the most densely populated regions, yellows are intermediate values, while greens are more sparsely populated. About half a billion people live in the wide swath just south of the Himalayas. These data were derived from population records based on political divisions such as states, provinces, and counties.
