Population heterogeneity in Nepal’s demography

< Abstract >

Nepal is transitioning in many avenues, including political, socio-economic, and demographic. Politically, the country adopted a new constitution in 2015 that formally established Nepal as a federal republic with a new administrative structure consisting of seven regions (called states) and 753 municipalities. Economically, Nepal is ready to graduate from a Low Developing Country (LDC) by 2026. In parallel, Nepal has completed its fertility transition reaching a total fertility rate of 2 children per woman in 2019. Moreover, the mortality situation is improving rapidly, as indicated by the under-five mortality rate reaching 28 deaths per 1000 births. The Nepalese population is highly mobile in terms of internal and international migration. Also, there has been significant improvement in education progression. While national-level aggregates provide an average picture, it also masks inequality and variation in demographic behaviours, especially as Nepal has a considerable population heterogeneity by region, educational attainment, caste, and ethnicity. In this presentation, we will focus on showing the population heterogeneity in demography and human capital and identifying issues that have significant consequences.
