Jamui – District fact sheet

Located in south-east Bihar, Jamui is resource rich with abundant reserves of mica, coal, gold and iron ore. People grow rice and wheat with a large number engaged in animal-rearing. With no major industry, people are involved in small-scale industry activity.


The fact sheets profile those eleven districts of Bihar where BTAST has been working since 2010. In addition to key demographic details, it takes into account health, nutrition and WASH indicators of each district. Data has been sourced from Census 2011, the Annual Health Survey and other secondary sources. We will be producing a new set of district factsheets based on CCM data and present these profiles one by one.
