Sometimes it is interesting to know the statistics of architects in India. As a woman Architect, practising in India, I am surprised that the male:female ratio of independently practising architects is so skewed even though at the time of admission, there are often equal number of girls and boys joining Architecture. Here are some interesting statistics about the architects in India, the male:female ratio, age, number of architects in cities and states of India, under the following headings:
How many Architects are there in India today?
What is the ratio of male to female architects in India?
Till what age do architects practise in India?
How many architects are there in the major cities in India?
How many architects are there in the states in India?
HOW MANY ARCHITECTS ARE THERE IN INDIA TODAY?
WHAT IS THE RATIO OF MALE AND FEMALE ARCHITECTS IN INDIA?
Out of these ninety thousand (registered) Architects, 53% (48,510) is Male while 47% (42,285) is Female. The number of women architects who have registered with the CoA has increased in the past 10 years from 34% to 47% which is a very favourable sign.
TILL WHAT AGE DO ARCHITECTS PRACTISE IN INDIA?
Out of the ninety thousand architects in India, 46,000 Architects (51%) are in the age group of 20-35 and there are just about 1565 Architects (2%) in the post retirement age group of 66-75. Surprisingly, there are 741 Architects in the age group 76-85, and believe it or not there are 86 Architects older than 85 who are still practicing. Architecture being a creative field, one can just not fix an age of retirement. So if you have the enthusiasm for it, you could still be practicing at 90!
