Demographic Transition in Andhra Pradesh : Dividend or Burden?


  • Motkuri, Venkatanarayana


While most of the developed countries moved out of dividend phase and entered into aging burden phase, the developing countries are now witnessing demographic dividend phase. India is one of the countries that are experiencing bulging youth (15-34) and thereby working age (15-59) population termed as demographic dividend given its economic advantages. Within the country, Andhra Pradesh is one of those states that are having the similar experience of bulging working age population. In this context present paper aims to examine the demographic transition and its impact in terms of dividend or burden to the society and economy of Andhra Pradesh.
