Results of a study on age at menopause in India and the factors affecting it are presented. Data concern 500 post-menopausal women forming a representative sample of the population of Himachal Pradesh. The mean age at menopause was 43.55 years. Rural or urban residence and parity had no discernible effect on age at menopause. However, women of higher socioeconomic status and those living at lower altitudes had later onset of menopause.
