The note about the remarkably low birth rate in Ladakhi villages is interesting but without explanation seems more remarkable than it is. I have no published sources, but having been in Ladakh for over ten years, I can say this is obviously due to the massive rural-to-urban migration. In many villages, the men and women of childbearing age have left the village for work and are staying in Leh town, while only their elderly parents remain in the village. They still consider the village their "home" and come for holidays and school vacations, but the census counted where people actually stayed for more than 6 months of the year, and thus people were counted where they work, study, or keep house, not in their ancestral villages.

Ladakh peoples protests[edit]

It is so shame full situation that any coverage of Ladakh peoples protest against Shortage of drinking water, Lack of teachers in Indian Govt schools, erotic power supply, High air fares, Students rights, Killing of people in neighbouring Kashmir, Quota issue against Indian state Government and High court is forcefully being denied.

Is it your neutrality WP ?

I am disappointed with this cherry picking article which is just a no value article on current Ladakh population centres situation.
