Interaction between socio-economic and demographic factors of change is an important and interesting topic of study in respect of any society. Such a study assumes overwhelming importance in the case of tribal societies known for their backwardness and extremely slow process of socio-economic change. Although the tribal people are known to have some distinct demographic features and these features have important implications for their socio-economic development, very little attempt has been made to analyse them and relate them to their problems. In Tripura and other North Eastern States, the concern for dealing with the problem posed by immigration of non-tribal has diverted the attention of the researchers from the analysis of demographic changes in the tribal societies of Tripura and their relation with economic development of these social groups. The present paper is a humble step to bridge this gap.
