As of 2011 it is the third least populous district of Bihar (out of 39), after Sheikhpura and Sheohar.


The district is infested with Naxalites, which is one factor that hampers growth of the area besides lack of infrastructure and power. Communism is yet another factor where there is always a tussle between high class and low class of society. There was a massacre of Dalit people at Laxmanpur Bathe in 1997. It is currently a part of the Red Corridor.
