Published By : Centre for Development Sudies | Publish Date : 14 May, 2018

Pioneer among the Indian states undergoing demographic changes, Kerala is currently experiencing advanced demographic transition while most of the other Indian states are way behind. The mortality and fertility levels have touched near saturation bottom levels in Kerala and therefore migration remains critical in shaping the future demographic scenario. This policy brief summarises the changes in mortality and fertility in the state since its formation in 1956, along with the impact of such changes on the migration scenario of the state and its economy.
