Dr D. S. R. S. Prakash

Abstract :

The present paper reports the ineeding effects on the reproductive wastage in terms of genetic load among endogamous tribal population, namely Yerukala living in Coastal Andhra Pradesh. Estimates of genetic load were calculated from the data on the reproductive histories of randomly selected 100 couples belonged to above populations. The regression coefficient ‘B’ is positive in this tribe and indicated a positive association between ineeding and mortality. The genetic load is predominantly segregational. However, the genetic load is due to based on total mortality data revealed that the association between mortality and ineeding is negitive. Relatively lower levels of coefficient ‘A’ revealed the changing public health status of these populations.
