Abstract

Population growth in Kochi city is low by any standard of urban agglomerations. Low fertility and thereby a fall in the child population, increase of share and growth of main workers contributed by an increase in labour force participation among females, lowering of share and growth of marginal workers, are all positive factors, whereas non-decline of non-workers, high rate of growth of the slum region are the matters of concerns. All these evidences call for a change in approach of urban planning in Kochi City. However, public health measured by Infant Mortality Rate is showing significant improvement in Kochi city compared to state average.
