If you want to make some additions to your income portfolio this month, then it could be worth checking out the ASX 200 dividend shares listed below.

That's because analysts are currently tipping them as buys and forecasting attractive yields. Here's what they are saying about them:

Endeavour Group Ltd (ASX: EDV)

The team at Goldman Sachs thinks that drinks giant Endeavour could be an ASX 200 dividend share to buy.

The broker likes the company due to its industry-leading position and attractive valuation following recent weakness. It highlights that its shares trade "at an attractive 16.9x FY24 P/E vs 5.2% EPS 23-26e CAGR for a staple with clear market leading position."

In respect to dividends, Goldman is forecasting fully franked dividends of 21 cents per share in FY 2024 and 23 cents per share in FY 2025. Based on the current Endeavour share price of $4.96, this equates to yields of 4.2% and 4.6%, respectively.

Goldman has a buy rating and a $6.40 price target on the company's shares.

Healthco Healthcare and Wellness REIT (ASX: HCW)

Another ASX 200 dividend share that analysts have named as a buy is Healthco Healthcare and Wellness REIT. It is a leading health and wellness-focused real estate investment trust.

Morgans is positive on the company and has an add rating and a $1.67 price target on its shares.

As for income, it is forecasting dividends per share of 8 cents in both FY 2024 and FY 2025. Based on the current Healthco Healthcare and Wellness REIT unit price of $1.38, this will mean yields of 5.8% for both years.

Transurban Group (ASX: TCL)

A final ASX 200 dividend share that analysts are tipping as a buy is toll road giant Transurban.

Citi is a fan of the company and believes it is well-placed for growth thanks to inflation-linked price increases and its defensive qualities. The broker has a buy rating and a $15.90 price target on its shares.

As for income, Citi is expecting dividends per share of 63 cents in FY 2024 and 65 cents in FY 2025. Based on the current Transurban share price of $11.94, this will mean yields of 5.3% and 5.4%, respectively.
