66% of India in the 15-65 age group
Not only the bulk of India’s population, nearly two-thirds, is in the working age group from 15-64 years, but the median age of the country is also still just 24 (even it up from 22 a decade ago) making it a rather young country with a large potentially productive workforce. on both counts, however, there are wide variations across states.

While India might have a whopping 767.5 million in the working age group, the proportion, of working age population varies widely from a high of 74.3% in tiny Daman and Diu, to a low of 55% in Bihar where 40% of the population is in the 0-14 age group. It is the same in Uttar Pradesh, another high fertility state, here the working age population constitutes just 58.6% while children constitute 36% of the population For India, the proportion of children (0-14 years) is 3l%. In low fertility states like Kerala and Tamil Nadu, children constitute just 23%o and,24% of the population. of the larger states, Tamil Nadu has the highest proportion of the population in the working age, 69.8%.

In general, among the larger states, the list of states with a high proportion of the population in the working ages bracket overlaps quite a lot with the list of states generally considered among the more developed.

This is good news to the extent that they are better placed to make ‘demographic dividend’ pay than others.
(Times of India, 8th September 2013)
(a) What is a demographic dividend?
(b) Name the states with highest and the lowest working age population. Also, give the reasons for such variations found across states.
