From the Chief Editor’s Desk

As you are aware that the demographic change has been unprecedented during the last few decades with rapid rise in human longevity accompanied with fast decline in fertility across the world.  As a sequel, spatial mobility has also been rising in the forms of migration, return migration, travel and commutation- intimately connected with each other. Such changes throw enormous challenges of research before population scientists. Demography India- a Journal of eminence in its own right provides a platform to the population researchers to publish their valuable work for advancing the discipline and helping to find a solution of emerging problems. The present volume contains eight articles and one book review covering issues related to unmet need of contraception, fertility, child mortality, menopause, mental health and old age security. The articles reflect the diversity in demographic facts and intend to cater the research interests of varied groups of demographers.

We welcome research papers, research notes and book reviews of contemporary relevance and research works of methodological significance. We take this opportunity to thank our reviewers for sparing their valuable time to review the papers. Dr Harihar Sahoo - Managing Editor deserves special thanks for his zeal and hard work in helping to finalize this volume. We sincerely welcome any suggestions and comments to improve the Journal.
