ARCHITECTS IN INDIA | STATISTICS

NUMBER OF ARCHITECTS - As on 01.04.2008, there are a total of 29,085 i.e. approximately THIRTY THOUSAND Architects in India.

RATIO OF MALE TO FEMALE ARCHITECTS IN INDIA - Out of these thirty thousand Architects, 66% (19,238) is MALE while 34% (9847) is FEMALE.


SELF EMPLOYED ARCHITECTS IN INDIA - An interesting fact is that while almost half (46%) of the male Architects are self employed, only about 32 % of female Architects are self employed. This could be because the general perception about women Architects is that they are better suited to be interior designers and so people hesitate to approach a woman Architect for architectural services.


AGE GROUP OF ARCHITECTS IN INDIA - Out of the Thirty thousand Architects in India, 15,000 Architects (50%) are in the age group of 20-35 and there are just about 1500 Architects (10%) in the age group of 66-75. Surprisingly, there are 267 Architects in the age group 76-85, and believe it or not there are 54 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!
