The International Institute for Population Sciences has taken a new initiative to bring out a series of working papers based on the projects / studies undertaken by the Institute. The main objective of the working paper series is to disseminate new research ideas, theoretical developments and methodological insights to the national and international research community as quickly as possible. The papers published under this series are peer reviewed by experts in the subject. We hope you will find the working papers interesting and useful.
