 en Selection intensity among Kshatriyas an endogamous population of Andhra Pradesh
B. Dharani Priya, P. Veerraju, T. Venkateswara Rao


Opportunity for natural selection has been studied among the women of Kshatriya caste population from rural and urban areas of north coastal Andhra Pradesh. The urbanrural difference for different demographic characteristics is not significant. The contribution of fertility component for both Crow's index and Jonston and Kensinger's index is more. The present study is compared with other Andhra populations. The decreased mortality differentials in Kshatriyas suggest that this component was directly affected by the better socio-economic level and reflects on the population's transitional phase.
