Khongji (2017) focuses on population projection for states of North east Region(NER), but yet no study has been done on the various economic implications on the projected population in the region. Hence, the present study can be an extended to emphasize on the implication of the projected population on some of the socio economic indicators of the region.
The economic indicators consider are labor force, new job requirements and GDP per capita and educational indicators are the numbers of school going children, numbers of teachers and requirement of new schools. These are projected over a period of 20 years from 2011 to 2031 for states of North east India, by utilizing RAPID module of SPECTRUM software developed by of Future Group International for projection.
The findings reveals that during the period of projection, labor force would rise by different percentage points in all the states of the region. However, the findings reveals that this increase would not be translated in to the projected number of requirement for new jobs. As far as gross state domestic product per capita is concerned, the study depicts that the indicator would increase for all states of North East during the period of projection. The study also reveals that there will be a fall in the number of Primary students in every state from the year 2011 through the year 2031. In connection with Secondary school section, the study shows that the number of secondary students will increases for all states through the years of projection.
