)+The present issue of the District Statistical Handbook seeks
to provide statistical information on various socio-economic aspects
of the district on a compact form. Attempts have been made to
incorporate latest available information in this publication maintaining
continuity of the time series of the data published in earlier issues.
Data at the Block level have also been incorporated as far as
available.
I express my gratitude to the different offices situated in the
district for their co-operation in obtaining data related to their
activities. I like to put in my appreciation to the officials of the Handbook,
Co-ordination & Nucleus (Compilation) units of the Head Office, District
office and Electronic Data Processing Unit of the Bureau of Applied
Economics & Statistics for their sincere and sustained work in bringing
out the publication.
Suggestions for any improvement of the publication will be
appreciated.
