Abstract: Abstract In this paper, we have tried to record the existing conditions of the demographic dividend in India using state-wise analysis approach. The paper examines the dependency ratios using more refined measures other than the conventionally used. In the paper, we have tried to formulate few measures to calculate the dependency ratios which can give a clear idea of dependency ratio in India. In the analysis, we have tried to find that how far the change in per capita GDP can be explained by a change in labour productivity, labour participation rate and working age-to-total population ratio. The growth of per capita has been decomposed into three factors by using shapely decomposition approach: (1) growth of output per worker; (2) growth linked to change in employment; (3) growth of working age-to-total population ratio.
