Population dynamics is the branch of life sciences that studies short-term and long-term changes in the size and age composition of populations, and the biological and environmental processes influencing those changes. The main aim of this article is to analyze the size, distribution, change, growth, trend, pattern and other over all status of population of Nepal of last hundred years (1911 – 2011).Secondary information obtained by author from authentic and reliable different sources and rearranged- calculated, re-tabulated and analyzed and make meaningful and sensible of them.
