United Nations, While the population ages and its growth shrinks in the southern states of India, labour migration from the northern and eastern states will make up for it and the “demographic dividend” will continue there, according to the UN.
A paper from the UN’s Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), “India Overtakes China as the World’s Most Populous Country”, released on Monday, noted the divergences between states, while the overall fertility rate for the country has fallen to 2, which is below the 2.1 replacement rate.
The replacement rate of fertility is the number of children a woman has to have to keep the population stabilised and fewer than that would mean a gradual reduction in population, which is happening in China with a 1.2 fertility rate as India has overtaken it to become the most populous country.
They range from 1.4 for Tamil Nadu and West Bengal to 3 for Bihar among the large states, with Kerala at 1.5, according to the Indian Census Organisation’s Sample Registration System report released last year.
