APCAPS Study Site
APCAPS is based in 29 villages in the Ranga Reddy district of Andhra Pradesh. Andhra Pradesh is the 5th most populous Indian state (out of 28), with a population of nearly 85 million. Its capital, and largest city, is Hyderabad and official language is Telugu.
All of the villages are undergoing rapid development and economic transition; populations are growing, land prices going up, traffic increasing and livelihoods are being altered as a result. The villages range greatly in size from Engelguda, with a population of 500, to the largest, Ibrahimpatnam, with over 11,000 inhabitants.
