This research studied the relationship between socio-demographic variables with respect to social and emotional maturity of tribal adolescents in Adilabad district of Telangana state. A self-designed interview schedule was used to study the socio-demographic characteristics of the respondents. Social maturity of the respondents was assessed by using Rao’s Social Maturity Scale and Emotional Maturity was assessed using scale developed by Yashwir Singh and Mahesh Bhargava. The data was analysed using Pearson correlation coefficient. The interview schedule was administered on 120adolescents out of which 60 are boys and 60 are girls who were selected using purposive random sampling method. Ex-post factor research design was used for the study. The results revealed that, age of the adolescent and mother’s occupation are positively correlated with social maturity.
