This study provides a comparative analysis of the socio-economic status of Scheduled Castes (SCs) and Scheduled Tribes (STs) in Andhra Pradesh, India. The objective of the study is to examine the disparities and challenges faced by these marginalized communities in terms of education, employment, income, and access to basic amenities. Data from various sources, including census reports, government surveys, and research studies, are utilized to analyze the socio-economic indicators. The findings reveal significant disparities between SCs, STs, and other communities in Andhra Pradesh. SCs and STs experience lower literacy rates, limited employment opportunities, lower average incomes, and inadequate access to basic amenities. The study highlights the need for targeted policies and interventions to address the socio-economic inequalities faced by SCs and STs in Andhra Pradesh.
