According to the 2011 census, India’s population is 121 crore (1.21 billion), an increase of 18.1 crore (181 million) since 2001. United Nations estimates indicate that India will be the most populous country in the world by 2030, surpassing China. The Empowered Action Group (EAG) states constitute 45.9 percent of the country’s population, so the future of India’s population will largely be governed by the socio-demographic status of these states. This brief, developed by the Policy Unit of the National Institute of Health and Family Welfare and the USAID-funded Health Policy Project, presents a situational analysis of fertility and family planning indicators of the EAG states in India, focusing on the levels of and trends in certain crucial indicators, such as the total fertility rate, contraceptive prevalence rate, current scenario of method mix, and unmet need for contraception. This analysis could be used as a ready reckoner for stakeholders at different stages of planning and implementing family welfare programs across the EAG states.
