Also on rise is Maharashtra’s age dependency ratio — ratio of older dependents (people older than 64) to the working age population (between 15 to 64).
THE NUMBER of centenarians — those over the age of 100 — has hit a record high in Maharashtra.
They constitute a miniscule 0.05 per cent of the country’s 121.05 crore population as per the 2011 Census.
In India, while those over the age of 60 constitute 8.6 per cent of the population, in Maharashtra, it is 9.9 per cent.
There are 57,950 centenarians in the state as per the 2011 Census report — a 210 per cent increase over the figure released in the 2001 Census when the state had only 18,638 individuals over the age of 100.
