Preface


The National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO) conducted an all-India survey of
households and unorganised service sector enterprises in the 63
rd
round of NSS during July 2006
– June 2007. The subject of the household survey was household consumer expenditure. Surveys
on consumer expenditure are being conducted quinquennially on a large sample of households
from the 27
th
round (October 1972 – September 1973) onwards. Apart from these quinquennial
surveys, the NSSO has annually collected information on consumer expenditure from a smaller
sample of households since the 42
nd
round (July 1986 – June 1987). The 63
rd
round consumer
expenditure survey belongs to this annual series.
The report presents data on both level of consumption – measured by the sum of
monetary values of goods and services consumed per month by households – and the
composition of total consumption by commodity group. As is the practice in NSS surveys, not
only average levels of consumption but also the distribution of households and persons over
different ranges of consumption level are presented, separately for rural and urban areas of
different States of the country. Besides the details on consumer expenditure, the schedule of
enquiry for the 63
rd
Round also integrated the module on participation of the rural population in
the public works.
Chapter One of the report serves as the introduction. Chapter Two explains the concepts
and definitions used in the survey. Chapter Three gives the main findings on level and pattern of
consumption. Chapter Four discusses other aspects of level of living such as structure type,
energy used for cooking and lighting, and literacy. Chapter Five deals with participation of the
rural population in public works. Detailed tables at the State and all-India level are given in
Appendix A, while the sample design and the estimation procedure are explained in Appendix B.
A facsimile of the schedule used for data collection is given as Appendix C.
The Survey Design and Research Division (SDRD) of the NSSO undertook the
development of the survey methodology, survey instruments and drafting of the report. The field
work was carried out by the Field Operations Division (FOD) of NSSO while the data processing
and tabulation work was handled by the Data Processing Division (DPD) of NSSO. The
Coordination and Publication Division (CPD) coordinated various activities pertaining to the
survey.
I am thankful to the members of the then Governing Council of NSSO, as well as to the
members of the Steering Committee of National Sample Surveys, and to the Working Group for
NSS 63
rd
round for their valuable guidance at various stages of survey activities from designing
of the questionnaire to the preparation of this report. I also place on record my thanks to various
officers of different divisions of the NSSO involved in the preparation of this report.
I hope the report will prove useful to planners, policy makers, academicians and
researchers. Suggestions from readers for improvement of the content of the report will be highly
appreciated.

NSS Report No.527: Household Consumer Expenditure in India, 2006-07
Highlights


A sample of 33146 rural households and 30583 urban households spread over the entire country was
surveyed in the Consumer Expenditure Survey of the 63
rd
round of NSS, carried out in 2006-07.

LEVEL OF CONSUMPTION IN 2006-07

The survey estimated that in 2006-07, around one-half (50.3%) of the Indian rural
population belonged to households with monthly per capita consumption expenditure
(MPCE) less than Rs.580 at 2006-07 prices.
In urban India, where expenditure levels were higher, only 17.4% of the population
belonged to households with monthly per capita consumer expenditure less than Rs.580.
About 50% belonged to households with monthly per capita consumer expenditure less than
Rs.990.
Average monthly per capita consumer expenditure (average MPCE) in 2006-07 was
Rs.695 in rural India and Rs.1312 in urban India at 2006-07 prices. The corresponding
average MPCE in 2005-06 (NSS 62
nd
round) was Rs.625 in rural India and Rs.1171 in urban
India at 2005-06 prices.

PATTERN OF CONSUMPTION IN 2006-07

Out of every rupee spent in 2006-07 by the average rural Indian on consumption, 52
paise was spent on food. Of this, 17 paise was spent on cereals and cereal substitutes, 8 paise
on milk and milk products, 6 paise on vegetables, 4 paise on sugar, salt and spices, and 4
paise on beverages, refreshments, processed food and purchased meals.
Out of every rupee spent in 2006-07 by the average urban Indian on consumption, 39
paise was spent on food. Of this, 9 paise was spent on cereals and cereal substitutes, 7 paise
on milk and milk products, 6 paise on beverages, refreshments and processed food, and 4
paise on vegetables.
There was little difference between rural and urban households in the share of the
budget allocated to fuel and light (10% for rural, 9% for urban) and clothing, including
bedding and footwear (7% for rural, 6% for urban).
There was considerable difference between rural and urban households in the share of
the budget allocated to cereals (17% for rural, 9% for urban), rent (less than 0.5% for rural,
5% for urban), education (3% for rural, 7% for urban), and miscellaneous consumer services
including transport and telephone (8% for rural, 14% for urban). There was some difference
between the rural and urban sectors in the share of medical expenditure (8% for rural, 6%
for urban).
In rural India, value of average monthly food consumption per person was between
Rs.260 and Rs.275 in Madhya Pradesh, Orissa and Chhattisgarh, over Rs.500 in Punjab and
Kerala, and in between these levels in the remaining major States. In urban India,
corresponding State-level averages of monthly food consumption per person varied between
Rs.400 and Rs.640 for the 17 major States.
… contd.
ii Highlights
NSS Report No.527: Household Consumer Expenditure in India, 2006-07

The share of food in total consumption expenditure of rural households varied from
40% for Kerala and 43% for Punjab to about 57-60% for Assam, Orissa, Jharkhand, West
Bengal and Bihar. The share of food expenditure was between 34% and 46% for the urban
sector of all States except Bihar, where it was 50%.

CEREAL CONSUMPTION IN 2006-07

Average quantity of cereals consumed per person per month in 2006-07 was 11.7 kg in
rural areas and 9.6 kg in urban areas.
From about 8.7 kg in the lowest MPCE class, monthly per capita cereal consumption in
rural India increased more or less steadily with MPCE to about 12.4-12.6 kg in the top three
MPCE classes.
In urban India, cereal consumption per person per month was a little over 8 kg in the
lowest MPCE class, rising with MPCE level to around 9.8 kg in the fourth lowest MPCE
class. After this there was very little rise in consumption with rise in MPCE, and, in fact, a
decline in cereal consumption as one moves up through the top four or five MPCE classes.
In rural India, the share of cereals other than rice and wheat was 6% or less in all major
States except Gujarat (41%), Karnataka (37%), Maharashtra (33%), Rajasthan (28%), and
Madhya Pradesh (20%). In urban India cereals other than rice and wheat accounted for 3%
or less of total cereal consumption in all but 4 major States – Karnataka (24%), Maharashtra
and Gujarat (10-11%), and Rajasthan (7%).
At State level, the share of cereals in total expenditure in rural India varied from 8% in
Punjab and 9% in Haryana and Kerala to 23-24% in West Bengal, Jharkhand and
Chhattisgarh, 25% in Orissa, and 26% in Bihar. In urban India, the share varied less, from 6%
for Punjab and 7% for Gujarat, Haryana, Kerala and Maharashtra to 18% for Bihar.

OTHER ASPECTS OF LIVING CONDITIONS

The percentage of rural households in India living in katcha structures (both roof and
walls made of katcha materials) was estimated as 22%, and the percentage living in pucca
structures (both roof and walls made of pucca materials) as 49%. The remaining 29% of rural
households lived in semi-pucca structures, that is, structures of which either the roof or the
walls (but not both) were made of pucca materials. Among urban households, 4% were
estimated to live in katcha structures, 11% in semi-pucca structures, and 85% in pucca
structures.
In urban India, the percentage of households using LPG as the major fuel for cooking
was in the range of 41-73% in all the major States – over 70% in Punjab, Gujarat, Assam and
Maharashtra. The all-India percentage was 59%. In rural India, 75% of households in the
country continued to depend on firewood and chips for cooking. Another 9% used dung
cake and 9% used LPG.
About 56% of households in rural India used electricity for lighting while 42% used
kerosene. In urban India 90% or more households used electricity for lighting in all major
States except Bihar (67%), Uttar Pradesh (83%), Jharkhand and Orissa (88%) and West
Bengal (89%).
Wide inter-State variation existed in literacy rate (age 7+), especially in case of rural
females, for whom the State-level literacy rates for 25 important States were spread over the
range 38-91%. For rural males and urban females, 19-20 of the 25 States were in the 70-89%
Highlights iii
NSS Report No.527: Household Consumer Expenditure in India, 2006-07
range, the all-India average being 76-77%. For the urban male population, the all-India
literacy rate was 89% and, in all except 1 State, 85% or more were literate.
Covered area of dwelling units was in the range 30-54 sq.m. for more than 35% of rural
households and 31% of urban households at the all-India level,

PARTICIPATION OF RURAL POPULATION IN PUBLIC WORKS

Among rural males aged 15 or more, the proportion getting work in public works
during the last 365 days was 72 per 1000 and among rural females the proportion was 35 per
1000.
The percentage of males getting work in public works was over 35% in the lowest
MPCE class, with no other MPCE class showing a percentage higher than 18%. Except in the
bottom two MPCE classes, however, males who sought but failed to get work outnumbered
those who succeeded in getting work.

NSS Report No.527: Household Consumer Expenditure in India, 2006-07
Chapter One

Introduction


1.0.1 This is a report on household consumption in India based on a nationwide sample
survey of the National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO).

1.0.2 The NSSO conducts regular consumer expenditure surveys as part of its “rounds”, each
round being normally of a year’s duration and covering more than one subject of study. The
surveys are conducted through household interviews, using a random sample of households
covering practically the entire geographical area of the country. The present report is based
on data on consumer expenditure collected through the 63
rd
round of NSS (July 2006-June
2007).

1.0.3 The subjects covered in a particular NSS round are usually not repeated in the next
round but are repeated at intervals of 5 or 10 years. Thus a time series of data is created for
each subject of study, such as unorganised manufacture, health and medical care, etc, on a
quinquennial or decennial periodicity. Every 5 years or so, a full-scale consumer expenditure
survey (CES) is conducted as the main enquiry of a round. This provides a “quinquennial
series” of CES’s. However, the CES, based on a relatively thin sample, is included in nearly
every round of NSS. These CES’s, of which the 63
rd
round survey is one, are referred to
collectively as the “annual series” of CES’s.

1.0.4 The household consumer expenditure schedule (Schedule 1.0) used for the survey
collected information on quantity and value of household consumption with a reference
period of “last 30 days” for some items of consumption and “last 365 days” for some less
frequently purchased items
1
. To minimise recall errors, a very detailed item classification
was, as usual, adopted to collect information, including 148 items of food, 13 items of fuel,
28 items of clothing, bedding and footwear, 18 items of educational and medical expenses, 52
items of durable goods, and about 85 other items. The schedule also collected some other
particulars of each household member, such as age, sex and educational level. Besides the
household consumption, some details of participation in public works programmes in respect
of persons in rural areas aged 15 years and above were collected through this schedule during
the 63
rd
round.

1.0.5 The estimates appearing in this report can be grouped as follows:
o Distributions of households and persons by 12 classes of MPCE (household monthly
per capita consumer expenditure
2
)
o Average MPCE
o Composition of MPCE by item category (cereals, pulses, clothing, etc.)
o Quantity and value of per capita consumption of different cereals
o Distributions of households by characteristics such as structure and area of dwelling
unit, and energy used for cooking and lighting
o Distributions of persons by educational level

1
Specifically, these are items of clothing, bedding, footwear, durable goods, education and “institutional”
medical care.
2
This is the indicator of living standards built up from the consumption data collected.
Chapter One
NSS Report No.527: Household Consumer Expenditure in India, 2006-07

o Proportion of rural population aged 15 or more who got work in public works during
the last 365 days, average number of days worked by such persons in public works,
average wages received per day from such work, proportion of those who sought but
did not get work in public works, and particulars of complaints made and compensation
received by them, separately for males and females.

1.0.6 All estimates are provided separately for rural and urban sectors at State/UT level as
well as for all-India. Estimates of average MPCE are also presented separately for different
occupational types of households, social groups, and monthly per capita expenditure classes.
These estimates, for rural areas, are also presented for households in different size classes of
land possessed. At all-India level, estimates of composition of MPCE by item category and
consumption of different cereals and pulses are provided separately for households in each of
12 monthly per capita expenditure classes.

1.0.7 Chapter Two sets out the concepts and definitions and some of the important
procedures, followed in the consumer expenditure survey. The results obtained on
consumption and consumer expenditure and the findings on other living conditions of the
population are discussed in Chapter Three and Four respectively, while participation of the
rural population in public works is dealt with in Chapter Five. Appendix B gives details of
the sample design and estimation procedure followed and Appendix C is a facsimile of the
consumer expenditure schedule (“Schedule 1.0”) that was canvassed in the surveyed
households.

1.1 Some details of the survey

1.1.1 Geographical coverage: The survey covered the whole of the Indian Union except (i)
Leh (Ladakh), Kargil, Punch and Rajauri districts of Jammu & Kashmir, (ii) interior villages
of Nagaland situated beyond five kilometres of a bus route and (iii) villages in Andaman and
Nicobar Islands which remain inaccessible throughout the year.

1.1.2 Population coverage: The following rules were followed:
1. Floating population, i.e., persons without any normal residence, was excluded. But
persons residing in open space, roadside shelter, under a bridge, etc., more or less
regularly in the same place were covered.
2. Foreign nationals were excluded, as well as their domestic servants, if by definition
the latter belonged to the foreign national's household (see Chapter Two). A foreign
national who had become an Indian citizen for all practical purposes was, however,
covered.
3. Persons residing in barracks of military and paramilitary forces (like police, BSF etc.)
were kept outside the survey coverage. However, the civilian population residing in
their neighbourhood, including the family quarters of service personnel, was covered.
4. Orphanages, rescue homes, ashrams and vagrant houses were outside the survey
coverage. However, the persons staying in old age homes, the students staying in
ashram/hostels and the residential staff (other than monks/nuns) of these ashrams
were covered. Although orphans living in orphanages were excluded, the persons
looking after them and staying there were covered. Convicted prisoners undergoing
sentence were outside the coverage of the survey.

1.1.3 Sample size – first-stage units: As is usual in the regular NSS rounds, most States and
Union Territories participated in the survey: a “State sample” was surveyed by State
Government officials in addition to the “Central sample” surveyed by NSSO. For rural India,
5601 villages formed the Central sample for this round. Of these, 5531 villages were
ultimately surveyed. In the urban sector, the allocation for the Central sample was 7721
blocks, of which 7667 were surveyed. This report is based on the estimates obtained from the
Central sample alone.

STATE/UT LEVEL ESTIMATES

1.1.6 Data from all States and UTs surveyed have been included in the all-India level
estimates. Separate estimates have been presented for rural and urban sectors of all the major
States (population 20 million or more according to the 2001 Census), and combined estimates
(rural and urban separately) for two groups of State/UTs defined as follows:
Group of North-Eastern States: Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram,
Nagaland, Sikkim and Tripura.
Group of UTs: Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Chandigarh, Dadra & Nagar Haveli, Daman &
Diu, Lakshadweep and Pondicherry.

1.1.7 In addition, estimates have been presented in this report for a sector (rural or urban) of a
State/UT if at least 300 households have been surveyed in that sector of that State/UT.
NSS Report No.527: Household Consumer Expenditure in India, 2006-07
Chapter Two

Concepts and Definitions

BASIC CONCEPTS

2.1 Household: A group of persons normally living together and taking food from a common
kitchen constitutes a household. The word "normally" means that temporary visitors are
excluded but temporary stay-aways are included. Thus, a son or daughter residing in a hostel
for studies is excluded from the household of his/her parents, but a resident employee or
resident domestic servant or paying guest (but not just a tenant in the house) is included in the
employer/host's household. "Living together" is usually given more importance than "sharing
food from a common kitchen" in drawing the boundaries of a household in case the two criteria
are in conflict; however, in the special case of a person taking food with his family but sleeping
elsewhere (say, in a shop or a different house) due to space shortage, the household formed by
such a person's family members is taken to include that person also. Each inmate of a mess,
hotel, boarding and lodging house, hostel, etc., is considered as a single-member household
except that a family living in a hotel (say) is considered as one household only; the same
applies to residential staff of such establishments. Under-trial prisoners in jails and indoor
patients of hospitals, nursing homes, etc., are considered as members of the households to
which they last belonged.

2.2 Household size: The size of a household is the total number of persons in the household.

2.3 Household consumer expenditure: The expenditure incurred by a household on
domestic consumption during the reference period is the household's consumer expenditure.
Household consumer expenditure is the total of the monetary values of consumption of various
groups of items, namely (i) food, pan (betel leaves), tobacco, intoxicants and fuel & light, (ii)
clothing and footwear and (iii) all other goods and services, including durable articles.

2.3.1 For groups (i) and (ii), the total value of consumption is derived by aggregating the
monetary value (see Value of consumption) of goods actually consumed during the reference
period. An item of clothing and footwear is considered as consumed at the moment when it is
brought into maiden or first use. The consumption may be out of (a) purchases made in cash or
credit during the reference period or earlier; (b) home-grown stock; (c) receipts in exchange of
goods and services; (d) any other receipt like gift, charity, borrowing and (e) free collection.
Home produce is evaluated at the ex farm or ex factory rate. For evaluating the consumption of
the items of group (iii), a different approach is followed. In this case, the expenditure made
during the reference period for the purchase or acquisition of goods and services is considered
as consumption. However, for a few items of expenditure such as rent, telephone charges,
consumer taxes and railway season tickets, expenditure during the month is recorded as the
amount that was last paid divided by the number of months to which the payment related.

2.3.2 It is pertinent to mention here that the consumer expenditure of a household on food
items relates to the actual consumption by the members of the household and also by the guests
during ceremonies or otherwise. To avoid double counting, transfer payments like charity, loan
advance, etc. made by the household are not considered as consumption for items of groups (i)
and (ii), since transfer receipts of these items have been taken into account. However, meals
Chapter Two
NSS Report No.527: Household Consumer Expenditure in India, 2006-07
6
prepared in a household and served to non-household members is an exception to this rule.
Meals prepared in the household kitchen and provided to the employees and/or others would
automatically get included in domestic consumption of employer (payer) household. There is a
practical difficulty of estimating the quantities and values of individual items used for preparing
the meals served to employees or others. Thus, to avoid double counting, cooked meals
received as perquisites from employer household or as gift or charity are not recorded in the
recipient household. As a general principle, cooked meals purchased from the market for
consumption of the members and for guests and employees are also recorded in the purchaser
household.

2.3.3 This procedure of recording cooked meals served to others in the expenditure of the
serving households leads to bias-free estimates of average per capita consumption as well as
total consumer expenditure. However, donors of free cooked meals are likely to be
concentrated at the upper end of the per capita expenditure range and the corresponding
recipients at the lower end of the same scale. Consequently, the derived nutrition intakes may
get inflated for the rich (net donors) and understated for the poor (net recipients). This point has
to be kept in mind while interpreting the NSS consumer expenditure data for studies relating to
the nutritional status of households.

2.4 Monthly per capita consumer expenditure (MPCE): For a household, this is the total
consumer expenditure over all items divided by its size and expressed on a per month (30 days)
basis. A person’s MPCE is understood as that of the household to which he or she belongs.

2.4.1 MPCE class: Apart from providing estimates of distribution of households and
population by MPCE class for different States, this report also presents some all-India results
separately for population in different MPCE classes. For all these tables, 12 MPCE classes are
used for the rural population and 12 for the urban population and these are as shown below:

2.4.2 The MPCE class limits for the rural and urban tables have been chosen differently.
This is because of the wider range of variation in MPCE in urban areas compared to rural
areas. The MPCE classes used are the same as those used in the last survey of the
quinquennial series of CES’s, (NSS 61
st
round). In that round, the MPCE classes for the rural
sector were so formed that the first two and the last two classes each contained about 5% of
the all-India rural population according to the 61
st
round survey, and the remaining classes
each contained about 10%. The classes for the urban sector were formed similarly

2.5 Reference periods: The reference periods used for collection of consumption data for
different groups of items are as shown in the following table. For items of category I, the value
of consumption for a period of 30 days is obtained for a surveyed household by multiplying
the recorded figure by the factor 30/365. This system of reference periods, called the Mixed
Concepts and Definitions
NSS Report No.527: Household Consumer Expenditure in India, 2006-07

Reference Period (MRP) is the one used, by convention, in surveys of the annual series (see
paragraph 1.0.3 in Chapter One).

2.6 Value of consumption: Consumption out of purchase is evaluated at the purchase price.
Consumption out of home produce is evaluated at ex farm or ex factory rate. Value of
consumption out of gifts, loans, free collections, and goods received in exchange of goods and
services is imputed at the rate of average local retail prices prevailing during the reference
period.

2.7 Major States: This refers to the 17 States of India which had a population of 20 million
or more according to the Census of 2001. The States are: Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Bihar,
Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Haryana, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh,
Maharashtra, Orissa, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal.
Together, these States accounted for nearly 94.7% of India’s population in 2001.


OTHER DEFINITIONS

2.8 Adult: A person who has completed 15 years of age.

2.9 Educational level: Ten educational levels are considered for classifying the population.
These are listed in Chapter Four, paragraph 4.4.1. For the purpose of determining educational
level, the highest course successfully completed is considered. For instance, the level of a
person who has studied up to, say, first year B.A., is “higher secondary”. The educational
level of a person who has studied up to 12
th
standard but has not appeared for the final
examination or has failed is “secondary”.

2.10 Flat: A flat, generally, is a part of a building and has one or more rooms with self-
contained arrangements and normal housing facilities like water supply, latrine, toilet, etc.,
which are used exclusively by the family residing therein or jointly with other families. It
also includes detached room or rooms which may or may not have other housing facilities.

2.11 Independent house: An independent house is one which has a separate structure and
entrance with self-contained arrangements. In other words, if the dwelling unit and the entire
structure of the house are physically the same, it is considered as an independent house. Here
dwelling unit means living rooms, kitchen, bathroom, latrine, store-room and verandah (both
open and closed).

2.12 Literate: A person who can both read and write a simple message with understanding
in at least one language is considered literate.

2.13 Structure types: katcha, pucca, semi-pucca: These are defined as follows.

2.13.1 Katcha: A katcha structure is one whose walls and roof are made of katcha
materials, which means materials such as mud, bamboo, grass, leaves, reeds, thatch or
unburnt bricks, etc.

2.13.2 Pucca: A pucca structure is one whose walls and roof are made of pucca
materials, which means materials such as burnt bricks, stone, cement, concrete, jackboard
(cement-plastered reeds) and timber. Tiles, galvanised tin or asbestos cement sheets used in
construction of roofs are also regarded as pucca materials.

2.13.3 Semi-pucca: A semi-pucca structure is one of which either the roof or the walls but
not both is made of pucca materials (see above).


NOTES ON COVERAGE OF DIFFERENT CONSUMPTION ITEMS

The coverage of various categories of consumption items used in presenting the results of the
survey in this report is explained below, with the categories arranged in alphabetical order.

Barley products: This includes sattu prepared by frying and powdering barley.

Beverages, etc.: This stands for “beverages, refreshments and processed food”. It includes
tea, coffee, mineral water, soft drinks, fruit juice (not prepared at home), green coconut water,
soda water, other beverages such as cocoa, biscuits, cakes, pastries, pickles, sauce, jam, jelly,
and other salted refreshments and sweets not prepared at home. Refreshments prepared at
home are not included here. Instead, the ingredients of the refreshments (such as flour, sugar,
milk, etc.) are accounted under “cereals” (e.g. against “wheat”), “sugar”, etc. Food purchased
in the form of cooked meals is also included in “processed food”.

Cereals: Note that household consumption of cereals does not include consumption of
cereals by livestock belonging to the household. Such expenditure, being part of farm
expenditure, is excluded from household consumer expenditure altogether.

Cereal substitutes: Cereals are usually a person's staple food in India. But sometimes, by
choice or due to scarcity, a person may consume little or no cereal. The food requirement is
partially or wholly met in such cases by consumption of food items which could be treated as
substitutes for cereals. Tapioca, for example, is consumed in some parts of the country as a
substitute for cereals. Similarly, jackfruit seed, mahua, etc. are also consumed as substitute
for cereals. Potato or sweet potato consumed as substitutes for cereals are not, however,
shown here. These are included in “vegetables”.

Clothing: The term “clothing” is used in this report as a short form of “clothing and
bedding”. Besides clothing proper, it includes bedding (pillows, quilts, mattresses, mosquito
nets, etc.), as well as rugs, blankets, curtains, towels, mats, cloth for upholstery, etc. It
excludes footwear and raincoats. Expenditure on tailor-made clothing excludes tailoring
charges, which are accounted in “consumer services”. Consumption of an article of clothing
Concepts and Definitions
NSS Report No.527: Household Consumer Expenditure in India, 2006-07
9
is considered to take place when it is brought into first use. However, clothing purchased
second-hand is considered as consumed as soon as it is purchased. Imported ready-made
garments, even if purchased second-hand, are shown as first-hand purchase. Livery supplied
by the employer is taken into account in household consumption of clothing even if used
during duty hours only.

Conveyance: This includes expenditure incurred on account of journeys undertaken and/or
transportation of goods made by any means of conveyance. The expenditure is the actual fare
paid except in case of railway season tickets, for which expenditure is calculated as the cost
of the ticket divided by the number of months for which it is valid. Expenditure on journeys
undertaken by household members as part of official tours is not considered as consumer
expenditure of the household. But journeys to commute to and from place of work are
included here. The expenditure incurred on journeys undertaken under Leave Travel
Concession, etc., even if reimbursed, is included. In case of owned conveyance, the cost of
fuel (petrol, mobile oil, diesel, etc.) for power-driven transport and animal feed for animal-
drawn carriage is considered.

Durable goods: Items included here all have a lifetime of one year or more. However, some
petty durables such as spectacles, torches, locks, umbrellas, etc., are excluded. Note that
glassware, earthenware and plastic goods such as buckets are excluded from durable goods
and included in the “sundry articles” sub-group of “miscellaneous goods and services”.
Consumption expenditure on durable goods includes both expenditure on purchase and
expenditure on repair and construction of household durables. For land and residential
building, only expenditure on repair and maintenance is included. Durable goods include
furniture and fixtures, “entertainment” durables such as radios, TV, VCR/VCP/DVD players,
tape recorders and CD players, cameras, musical instruments, jewellery and ornaments,
crockery and utensils, cooking and other household appliances such as fans, air conditioners,
air coolers, sewing machines used for household work, washing machines, stoves, pressure
cookers, fridges, water purifiers, electric irons, heaters, toasters and ovens, household
transport equipment including two-wheelers, four-wheelers and their parts, therapeutic
appliances, clocks, watches, computers for household use, mobile phone handsets, and
bathroom and sanitary equipment.

Edible oil: Edible oils used for toilet purpose by the household are not included here.
Oilseeds are sometimes purchased or grown by a household for extracting edible oil (by
crushing) for consumption. The value of oilseeds so used is included in “edible oil”.

Education: This includes expenditure on goods purchased for the purpose of education, viz.,
books and journals, newspapers, paper, pen, pencil, etc., and also magazines, novels and
other fiction. It also includes fees paid to educational institutions (e.g., schools, colleges,
universities, etc.) on account of tuition and other fees like game fees, library fees, etc., and
payment to private tutors. Expenditure on Internet other than telephone charges is included
here. Occasional payments to the school fund made on account of charities, and donations
generally, are not included here, as they are regarded as transfer payments.

Entertainment: This includes expenditure on cinemas, theatres, melas, fairs and picnics,
expenditure incurred on processing, developing, etc., of photographic film, charges paid for
hiring of video cassette/VCR/VCP, and charges for viewing a video show. Expenses incurred
on subscription to dish antenna, cable TV facilities, etc. are also included. Club fees are
included here.

Footwear: This includes charges paid to a cobbler for getting a pair of shoes or other
footwear made. It excludes the cost of straps purchased separately.

Gram: This includes gram products such as sattu obtained by frying and powdering of gram
(whole grain). Besan made out of gram is, however, not included here, but in “other pulse
products”.

Maize products: This includes cornflakes, popcorn, etc., made of maize.

Medical expenses: This includes expenditure on medicine of different types and on medical
goods; also, payments made to doctor, nurse, etc., as professional fees and those made to
hospital, nursing home, etc. for medical treatment, and expenditure incurred for clinical tests,
including X-rays, ECG, pathological tests, etc. Payment of medical insurance premium,
which, in past rounds, was excluded from consumer expenditure, is also included.
Expenditure on all family planning appliances is included.

Medical: institutional and non-institutional expenditure: The distinction between
institutional and non-institutional medical expenses lies in whether the expenses were
incurred on medical treatment as an in-patient of a medical institution (institutional), or
otherwise (non-institutional). Medical institution here covers private as well as Government
institutions such as hospitals and nursing homes.

Milk and milk products: Milk products include ghee, butter, curd, etc. Milk used in home
preparation of sweetmeats, etc., is also accounted here. This category also includes those
baby foods of which the principal constituent is milk. Further, milk (liquid) includes ice-
cream of which the major component is milk. Ice with syrup but without milk sold under the
name of ice-cream is not included in this category.

Miscellaneous goods and services: This is a residual category covering all items other than
food, pan, tobacco, intoxicants, fuel and light, clothing, footwear, and durable goods. It
includes, among other things, expenditure on education, medical care, entertainment,
conveyance, rent, and consumer taxes and cesses. (Note, however, that in Schedule 1.0, the
schedule of enquiry of data collection, education and institutional medical care are separated
out from the “miscellaneous goods and services” block to form a separate block. In Table 4
of Appendix A, education, medical expenses, rents and taxes are shown separately, and the
remaining part of “miscellaneous goods and services” shown in two parts: miscellaneous
consumer goods, and consumer services.)

Pan: This includes, pan (betel leaves), supari, lime, katha, other ingredients of “finished”
pan, and pan purchased in finished form.

Rent: Rent includes house and garage rent, residential land rent and other consumer rent.

Rice products: Rice products are foods like chira, khoi, lawa, muri, rice powder, etc. which
are obtained by splitting, frying, powdering, or parching of the grain.

Wheat products: Bread is included here, but not wheat preparations like biscuits, cakes, etc.,
which are accounted in “beverages, refreshments and processed food”.

Chapter Three

Findings on Consumption


3.0 This chapter gives details of the level and pattern of consumer expenditure at national and
major State level. In case of cereals, the value as well as the quantity of consumption is
discussed. Much of this chapter is concerned with the estimates of household monthly per
capita consumer expenditure (MPCE). For obvious reasons, this variable is a widely used
indicator of human living standards.

3.1 The concepts of household MPCE and individual MPCE in NSS data

3.1.1 Normally, the concept of per capita expenditure or income is used for comparison of
living standards between countries or regions. One may also make similar comparisons
between such socio-economic categories as Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, or
cultivators and agricultural labourers.

3.1.2 The NSS concept of MPCE, however, is defined first at the household level (household
monthly consumer expenditure ÷ household size). This enables grouping of households by their
level of living, as measured by MPCE. Usually, 12 classes are formed for presentation of the
results. One of the most important products of the NSS consumer expenditure survey is the
distribution of the rural or urban households of India or any State/UT by classes of MPCE. This
gives us a synoptic view of how the households are clustered at different levels of living. Such
a distribution of population enables the study of aspects such as poverty and economic
inequality of populations, which is not possible through the knowledge of the population
average alone.

3.1.3 The concept of an individual’s MPCE is also defined in NSS. This is the MPCE of the
household to which the person (man, woman or child) belongs. This assigns to each person a
number representing his or her level of living, and allows the NSS to build up the distribution
of persons by their MPCE (i.e., their household MPCE). The picture of the population
classified by level of living is often preferred by data users to the corresponding picture of
households.

3.1.4 The discussion on level of consumption as presented below covers: (a) relationship
between MPCE and household size, (b) all-India distribution of population by MPCE and (c)
average MPCE: States and all-India. Under the pattern of consumption is discussed: (a) shares
of various food and non-food groups in total expenditure, (b) inter-State variation in cereal and
non-cereal food consumption expenditure and (c) quantity of cereals consumed per person: all-
India and inter-State variation.

LEVEL OF CONSUMPTION

3.2 MPCE and household size

3.2.1 Table 1 of Appendix A (page A-1) gives estimates of adult and child (under 15)
population in rural and urban India by sex and MPCE class. As mentioned in Chapter Two, 12
MPCE classes are used for the rural population and 12 for the urban population, the MPCE
class limits being chosen differently for the rural and urban populations.
3
In Figures 1R and 1U,
the distance between the upper and the lower lines shows the average number of adults per
household (= average household size minus average number of children) across MPCE classes.

o In both rural and urban areas, the general trend is for average number of children to
decline steadily as MPCE level rises. Richer households, on the average, have fewer
under-15 members.
o The average number of adults per household does not vary substantially with MPCE
class in either sector. As a result the graph of average household size with MPCE runs
more or less parallel to that of the average number of children, and so, on the whole,
falls as MPCE level rises.
o In both sectors, the bottom MPCE class has a smaller average household size than the
next class.

3.2.2 State-level averages of household size are shown in Table P2 (page 15).

3.3.2 In 2006-07, roughly one-half (50.3%) of the rural population of India had MPCE less than
Rs.580 (column 2 of Table P1) compared to only 17.4% of the urban population (column 6). For
urban India, the median level of MPCE was Rs.990.

3.4.1 The averages of MPCE for the rural and urban population of each major State and all-
India are presented in Table P2 below. Average sizes of rural and urban households in each
State are also shown in the same table for convenience. Multiplying MPCE by average
household size for any State gives consumption expenditure per household in that State.
Average household sizes for other States and the Group of UTs may be found in Tables 2R and
2U in Appendix A.

3.4.2 The all-India rural average MPCE was Rs.695. Among the major States, the lowest
average MPCE for rural areas was that of Orissa (Rs.459), preceded by Madhya Pradesh
(Rs.515), and Chhattisgarh, Bihar and Jharkhand (all under Rs.560). The highest average rural
MPCEs were those of Kerala (Rs. 1250) and Punjab (Rs.1198).

3.4.3 The lowest average urban MPCE was that of Bihar (Rs.865), preceded by Uttar Pradesh
and Madhya Pradesh (about Rs.1000 each). The highest urban average MPCEs were those of
Kerala (Rs.1681), Maharashtra (Rs.1673) and Punjab (Rs.1609).

3.4.4 Average urban MPCE (Rs.1312) exceeded average rural MPCE by 89% at the all-India
level. However, the comparison of rural and urban average MPCE at inter- or intra-State or
all-India level ignores the price differentials between rural and urban sectors and between the
regions. The urban price level is generally higher than the rural. This means that the real
difference in level of living between the two sectors may be narrower in real terms than what
this computation shows.

3.4.5 In general, States having MPCE lower than the all-India average in the rural sector
also had MPCE lower than the all-India average MPCE in the urban sector. But there were a
few exceptions. For Tamil Nadu, estimated rural MPCE (Rs.729) exceeded the all-India
average, but estimated urban MPCE (Rs.1227) was lower than the all-India average. The
reverse was true for West Bengal, where estimated rural MPCE was only Rs.630 while
estimated urban MPCE was Rs.1371.

PATTERN OF CONSUMPTION

3.5 Shares of various food and non-food groups in total expenditure

3.5.1 Table P4 gives the absolute and percentage break-up of all-India rural and urban
MPCE in 2006-07 into 9 broad groups of food items and 10 broad groups of non-food items.
A somewhat more detailed break-up using 14 food groups and 14 non-food groups is
available for the major States in Table 4 (R & U) on pages A-6 to A-13 (Appendix A).

3.5.2 Table P4 shows that out of every rupee that the average rural Indian spent in 2006-07
on household consumption, 52 paise was spent on food, of which 17 paise was spent on
cereals, 8 paise on milk and milk products, 6 paise on vegetables, 4 paise on sugar, salt and
spices, and 4 paise on beverages, refreshments, processed food and purchased cooked meals.

3.5.3 The average rural Indian also spent 10 paise (out of every rupee spent on
consumption) on fuel for cooking and lighting, 7 paise on clothing and footwear, 3 paise on
education, 8 paise on medical expenses, 6 paise on miscellaneous non-durable goods, 8 paise
on consumer services, and 4 paise on consumer durables.

3.5.5 The average urban Indian differed noticeably from the rural mainly by spending only 9
paise out of one rupee on cereals, but as much as 14 paise on consumer services, 7 paise on

education and 5 paise on rent. In fact the urban Indian devoted only 39 paise of the rupee on
food, spending a smaller portion of the rupee than the rural Indian on every food group
except the category “beverages, refreshments and processed food”.

3.5.6 In making such statements, however, the following points should be kept firmly in
mind (many of these appeared in Chapter Two as well).

1. All averages are computed taking the entire estimated population in the denominator.
Thus the very low average expenditure on rent in rural India reflects the fact that only
about 7% of the country’s rural households live in rented dwellings. The actual
number of consuming persons in the population is not considered here for any of the
item groups. For some item groups such as cereals, consuming persons would be
nearly the entire population; for other items, such as tobacco, it would obviously be
much smaller. “Expenditure” on food includes the value of self-consumed home
produce, calculated at ex farm prices. It includes also the value of food collected free,
for example, from forests, imputed at local retail prices.

2. “Expenditure” on fuel, likewise, includes the value of home-grown firewood,
calculated at ex farm prices, and the value of firewood and other fuel collected free,
imputed at local retail prices.

3. “Processed food” refers to purchased food items such as jam, pickles, etc., the
quantities and values of the individual ingredients of which are not known well
enough to be reported against the detailed items listed in the consumer expenditure
schedule. All food processed at home is accounted against the ingredients. For
example, a sweet prepared at home and consumed adds to the household’s (and the
concerned State/UT’s) consumption of cereals, sugar, milk, etc., but not to its
consumption of processed food.

4. Spending on tailor-made clothing does not include tailoring charges, which are
included in “miscellaneous consumer services”.
5. “Education” includes expenditure on newspapers and periodicals, and on books of all
kinds including fiction.

3.6 Food, non-food and total expenditure: comparison with previous round

3.6.1 Table P5 compares the food and non-food components of total MPCE with the
estimates for the previous (62
nd
) round, for which the reference period was 2005-06.

2005-06 468 703 1171 40.0 60.0 100

3.6.2 The share of food in total MPCE has been declining steadily in both rural and urban
India over the last few decades (see NSS Report No.508: Level and Pattern of Consumer
Expenditure, 2004-05). Table P5 suggests that the share of food has declined further between
2005-06 and 2006-07, falling by 1 percentage point to about 52% in the rural sector and falling
perceptibly below 40% in the urban sector.

3.6.3 Table 6(T) of Appendix A shows break-up of average rural and urban MPCE by 12 food
and 6 non-food item groups as estimated from the last three NSS rounds. For long-term
comparison, estimates from the 3 quinquennial surveys prior to the 61
st
round are also shown.
For rural India the increase in average MPCE at current prices since 2005-06 is 11.3%, while
the Consumer Price Index has increased by 3.3% over the same period. This means an increase
in real rural MPCE of about 8% since 2005-06. For urban India the increase in average MPCE
is 12% and the increase in the Consumer Price Index about 1.7%, implying an increase of over
10% in real urban MPCE since 2005-06.

3.7 Inter-State variation in food, cereal and non-cereal food expenditure

3.7.1 Details of inter-State differences in consumption pattern are available in Tables 4R and
4U (pages A-6 to A-13). Table P6 shows per capita expenditure on cereals, per capita
expenditure on food, and share of both cereals and food as a whole in total expenditure for the
major States. Generally, States with a higher-than-average share of cereals in total
expenditure were also States with a higher-than-average food share.

3.7.2 For rural India, State-level food expenditure per person varied, generally, in the range
Rs. 260-Rs.510 for the 17 major States against the national average of Rs.363. It was lowest in
Madhya Pradesh, Orissa and Chhattisgarh (between Rs.260 and Rs.275). Punjab (Rs.511) and
Kerala (Rs.506) reported the highest values of rural food expenditure per person. The share of
food in total consumption expenditure of rural households varied from 40% for Kerala and
Chapter Three

20
43% for Punjab to 57% for Assam, 58% for Orissa and Jharkhand, 59% for West Bengal and
60% for Bihar.

3.7.3 In urban India, averages of food expenditure per person varied, for the major States, in
the narrower range Rs.400-Rs.640. Punjab, Maharashtra and Kerala, all of which had urban
MPCE exceeding Rs.1600, were surpassed by Assam, a State with urban MPCE less than
Rs.1400, in respect of urban per capita food expenditure. The share of food expenditure was
between 34% and 46% for the urban sector of all major States except Bihar, where it was 50%.

3.7.4 In the rural sector, per capita expenditure on cereals was Rs.115 for India as a whole. It
was Rs.100 or less in 7 major States – Tamil Nadu, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka,
Punjab, Gujarat and Maharashtra – of which only one was a predominantly rice-consuming
State. It was highest in Assam (Rs.155) and West Bengal (Rs.142). In urban India, the 5 States
where per capita expenditure on cereals was lowest (between Rs.95 and 105) were Tamil Nadu,
Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab and Gujarat. It was Rs.176 in urban Assam and over Rs.150
in Jharkhand and Bihar. In most States per capita cereal expenditure was Rs.5-Rs.20 more in
the urban sector than in the rural, though there were exceptions.

3.7.5 At State level, the share of cereals in total expenditure in rural India varied from 8% in
Punjab and 9% in Haryana and Kerala to 23-24% in West Bengal, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh,
25% in Orissa, and 26% in Bihar. In urban India, the share varied less, from 6% for Punjab and
7% for Gujarat, Haryana, Kerala and Maharashtra to 18% for Bihar.

3.7.6 Table P7 highlights some other aspects of inter-State variation in food consumption
pattern, to the extent reflected in monthly per capita consumer expenditure: specifically,
expenditure on milk & milk products, egg, fish & meat, vegetables, and fruits.

3.7.7 Scatter diagrams of average rural/urban MPCE of the major States against average
rural/urban expenditure per person on (a) food (b) cereals are shown in Fig 4. There is a
tendency – though very weak in the urban sector – for share of cereals to fall with rise in
average MPCE. States with substantially varying average MPCE but very similar share of
cereals exist in both sectors. In the rural sector, (i) the States with share of cereals exceeding
20% are all States with average MPCE less than Rs.800; but the converse is not true (ii) States
with share of cereals less than 10% are all States with average MPCE above Rs.1000, and vice
versa. In case of the share of food, the association with MPCE is even less systematic. The top
two or three States ranked by MPCE have a much lower food share than the average.

3.8 Quantity of cereals consumed per person: all-India

3.8.1 At all-India level, the variation of per capita consumption (in both quantity and value
terms) with MPCE class of not only the cereal group as a whole but also for the separate
categories “rice and rice products”, “wheat and wheat products”, etc., is shown in Table 9
(R&U) and Table 10 (R&U) of Appendix A.

3.8.2 The behaviour of cereal consumption as MPCE increases is shown for all-India in Fig
5. Numbers 1 to 12 are used to denote the MPCE classes (which are different for rural and
urban), drawn up as explained in Chapter Two, paragraph 2.4.1.


Low MPCE High MPCE
Findings on Consumption
NSS Report No.527: Household Consumer Expenditure in India, 2006-07
23
3.8.3 From about 8.7 kg in the lowest MPCE class, monthly per capita cereal consumption
in rural India increases more or less steadily with MPCE (though tending to flatten out
slightly) to about 12.4 kg in the third highest MPCE class (Rs.690-890). As one moves to the
next (second highest) MPCE class, it tends to remain unchanged and then to rise again to 12.6
kg at the highest MPCE class (Rs.1155 or more).

3.8.4 In urban India, cereal consumption per person per month rises quickly from a little
over 8 kg in the lowest MPCE class to around 9.8 kg in the fourth MPCE class from bottom.
After this there is very little rise in consumption, which remains around 9.8 to 9.9 kg per
month until the fourth or fifth MPCE class from top, after which it starts declining steadily to
about 9.1 kg in the highest MPCE class (Rs.2540 or more).


3.9 Inter-State variation in quantity of cereals consumed per person

3.9.1 Table P8 gives monthly per capita consumption of cereals in kilograms in the major
States and the country as a whole, and the percentage shares of rice, wheat and the remaining
cereals in total cereal consumption. Further details of Statewise break-up of average cereal
consumption per person are available in Tables 7 (R&U) and 8 (R&U) of Appendix A.

3.9.2 Average cereal consumption per person per month was 11.7 kg in rural India and 9.6
kg in urban India, a difference of 2.1 kg, that is, about 70 g per day. Here it needs to be borne
in mind that in the consumer expenditure schedule, purchased cooked meals (e.g. meals
consumed in restaurants) and other purchased processed food are recorded under “beverages,
refreshments and processed food”; the cereal content of such food is not reflected in the
estimation of cereal consumption. Since the urban population consumes processed food to a
greater extent than the rural, the difference in cereal consumption between the two may be
less than it appears.

3.9.3 Rice and wheat together accounted for as much as 96% of all cereal consumption in
urban areas, and for 90% in rural areas. In rural India, the share of cereals other than rice and
wheat was 6% or less in all major States except Gujarat (41%), Karnataka (37%),
Maharashtra (33%), Rajasthan (28%), and Madhya Pradesh (20%). In urban India cereals
other than rice and wheat accounted for 3% or less of total cereal consumption in all but 4
major States – Karnataka (24%), Maharashtra and Gujarat (10-11%), and Rajasthan (7%).

3.9.4 Another persistent feature of the Indian cereal consumption scene is that the average
person in a primarily rice-consuming State consumes a larger quantity of cereals per month
than the average person in other States, including the primarily wheat-consuming States.
Kerala and Tamil Nadu, however, are exceptions.

3.9.5 In Table P9, the major States have been arranged in ascending order of per capita
cereal consumption of the rural sector. The rank of each State by MPCE (1
st
= highest) is
shown in parentheses.

Other Aspects of Living Conditions


4.0.1 Apart from measurement of quantities and values of consumption of various food and
non-food items, information on some additional aspects – mainly qualitative – of living
conditions was collected through the consumer expenditure schedule. Findings on some of
these aspects are discussed in this chapter: structure of dwelling unit, energy used for cooking
and lighting, educational level of the population, land possessed (rural households only) and
covered area of dwelling unit.

4.0.2 In addition, information on household occupational type and social group, and
occupancy status (viz., owned/ hired/ otherwise possessed) of dwelling units, which is
collected in every round, has been tabulated and shown without comment in Tables 17, 18
and 19 of Appendix A.

4.1 Structure of dwelling unit

4.1.1 Structures are classified as pucca if both walls and roof are made of pucca materials,
semi-pucca if either roof or walls, but not both, are made of pucca materials, and katcha if
both roof and walls are made of katcha materials. Pucca and katcha materials are explained
in Chapter Two, paragraphs 2.13.1 and 2.13.2.

4.1.2 Per 1000 distributions of rural and urban households by structure type of dwelling unit
are given Statewise in Table 11 of Appendix A (pages A-28 to A-31). The average MPCE of
households occupying each type of structure is also shown by State and sector in that table.
Table P10 below summarises the all-India results.

pucca 49 Rs.840 85 Rs.1418
all 100 Rs.695 100 Rs.1312


4.1.3 At the all-India level, dwelling units with pucca structures were estimated to constitute
85% of all dwelling units in urban areas but only 49% in rural areas. There was also wide
inter-State variation in the proportions of households occupying different types of structures,
especially in rural areas. In urban areas there was a substantial difference in average MPCE
of households occupying katcha and semi-pucca structures from the rest. In rural areas
households in pucca structures had an average MPCE of Rs.840 at the all-India level (about
21% higher than the overall average).

4.1.4 Among the noticeable features of the inter-State variation were the following:

Rural India:
o Among the major States (see Table P11), Orissa had the highest percentage (50) of
households dwelling in katcha structures, followed by Assam (43).
o The majority of structures were semi-pucca in 4 major States – Chhattisgarh,
Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal. In all other major States except Orissa
and Assam, pucca structures were in the majority.

Urban India:
o Katcha structures were a feature of less than 10% of household dwellings in all major
States except Orissa and Assam.
o In all major States, 66% or more of household dwellings were in pucca structures. In
Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, Gujarat, Kerala and Uttar Pradesh, more than 90% of
household dwellings were in pucca structures.

4.2 Energy for cooking

4.2.1 Per 1000 distributions of rural and urban households by primary source of energy used
for cooking are given Statewise in Table 12 (R&U) of Appendix A (pages A-32 to A-35).
Seven different fuel types are the energy sources considered in this table – coke/coal,
firewood and chips, LPG, gobar gas, dung cake, kerosene and electricity. Households using
any other source are clubbed under “others”, and the proportions of households with no
cooking arrangement are also shown. The average MPCE of households in the different
energy categories is, further, shown by State and sector.

4.2.2 Table P12 shows the most important cooking fuels in terms of percentages of
households using them as their primary source at all-India level, along with the average
MPCE of households falling in each category.

4.2.3 Three-quarters (75%) of rural households in the country continued to depend on
firewood and chips for cooking. Another 9% used dung cake and 9% used LPG. In urban
areas, LPG was the primary source of energy for the majority of households (59%).

4.2.4 The average MPCE of LPG users was appreciably higher than that of the general
population, especially in rural India. In urban India, average MPCE of those who used
firewood and chips, or dung cake, was much lower than that of the general population.
Nevertheless, for 22% of urban households, firewood and chips was the primary source of
energy for cooking. Interestingly, the average MPCE of these urban households at Rs.691
was marginally higher (by 7%) than the corresponding rural households. This parity of
average MPCE of urban and rural households is in contrast to the disparity of overall average
MPCE between urban and rural, the former being 89% higher than the latter. Those with no
cooking arrangement had a higher-than-average MPCE in both rural and urban India.

4.2.5 Some features of inter-State variation in this respect are noted below:

Rural India:
o The percentage of households depending on firewood and chips for cooking exceeded
74% in all major States except Bihar, Punjab and Haryana.
o Dung cake was the major fuel for 39% households in Bihar, 31% in Punjab, 20% in
Madhya Pradesh and 18% in Haryana.
o The use of LPG was highest in Punjab (30%), followed by Kerala (19%).

4.2.6 Changes in the all-India distribution of households by primary source of energy for
cooking since 1999-2000 (NSS 55
th
round) are shown in Table P14. The most spectacular
change is in the growing use of LPG. In the urban sector, the increase of 15 percentage points
in the proportion of households using LPG since 1999-2000 has clearly been balanced by a
fall in the proportion of kerosene users during the same period by about 14 percentage points.
For rural India, however, the increase in LPG use is slow, especially if the 55
th
round (1999-
2000) figures are left out. While the use of coke/coal, dung cake and kerosene is declining in
the rural sector, the propensity of use of firewood and chips for fuel remains unchanged over
the years.

4.3 Energy for lighting

4.3.1 Per 1000 distributions of rural and urban households by primary source of energy used
for lighting are given Statewise in Table 13 of Appendix A (pages A-36 to A-39). Five
different fuel types are considered in this table – kerosene, other oil, gas, candle and
electricity. Households using any other source are clubbed under “others”, and the
proportions of households with no lighting arrangement are also shown. The average MPCE
of households using different types of fuel is, further, shown by State and sector.

4.3.2 Households using electricity for lighting and households using kerosene together
accounted for at least 97% of households in both rural and urban areas of practically every

major State. In rural areas the kerosene-electricity break-up of households varied
considerably over States (see Table P15).

4.4 Level of Education

4.4.1 Table 14 of Appendix A (pages A-40 to A-45) gives distribution of population aged 7
and above by educational level, separately for males, females, and persons of both sexes, in
rural and urban sectors of each State and all-India. Ten levels of education are considered:

not literate secondary
literate without formal schooling higher secondary
literate but below primary diploma/ certificate course
primary graduate
middle post-graduate and above

4.4.2 The educational level of a person is understood as the highest level, among the above,
that he or she has successfully completed.

4.4.3 The all-India distributions of males and females are shown in Table P17, with the
highest three levels clubbed together.

4.4.4 The all-India literacy rates (percentage of literates among 7+ population) for the four
population groups are thus (from the figures in col.3 above): rural females: 53.5%; rural
males: 76%; urban females: 77%; urban males: 89%.

4.4.5 Table P19 shows variation in literacy rate among the States considered in this report
(estimates are given in this report for the rural sector of 23 States and the urban sector of 23
States, apart from two State/UT groups). Variation was widest in case of rural females, for
whom the State-level literacy rates were spread diffusely over the range 38-91%, being
lowest in Bihar (38%) and Rajasthan (39%). For rural males and urban females, the literacy
rate was within 70-89% in 17 or 18 (out of 23) States, of which less than half were in the 80-
89% range. Urban male literacy was 85% or more in all States except Uttar Pradesh, and was
90% or more in 11 of the 23 States.

4.5.1 Statewise distributions of rural households by size class of land possessed are given in
Table 15R of Appendix A (page A-46), using 10 size classes. The all-India distribution is
presented in Table P20, where the average MPCE of households in each size class is also
shown.

4.5.2 About 65% of rural households in India possessed land of size 0.01 hectares or more.
Of these, more than a quarter (17.7% of rural households) possessed 0.41-1.00 hectares of
land. Though the average MPCE is generally higher for higher size class of land possessed,
the relationship is not a monotonically increasing one.

Chapter Five

Participation of Rural Population in Public Works


5.0.1 Information on participation in public works by the rural population (15+) was
collected in the 63
rd
round of NSS along with the consumer expenditure (and other living
conditions) survey. In the previous round similar information had been collected as part of
the survey on employment and unemployment.

5.0.2 For the purpose of this survey, “public works” were defined as those activities which
o were sponsored by Government or local bodies and covered local area development
works like construction of roads, dams, bunds, digging of ponds, etc., as relief
measures, or as an outcome of employment generation schemes under the poverty
alleviation programme such as Employment Guarantee Scheme (EGS), Sampoorna
Grameen Rozgar Yojana (SGRY), National Food for Work Programme (NFFWP),
etc.
o had the primary objective of generation of wage employment and poverty alleviation,
in achieving which the creation of community assets was an outcome.
5.0.3 Work generally undertaken in these schemes included watershed development,
drought proofing, land levelling, flood control, laying of pipes or cables, sanitation, water
harvesting, constructing irrigation canals, development of orchards, road construction,
building construction or repair, running of crèches, etc. However, some schemes of work
executed through contractors, even though resulting in employment generation, were kept
outside the domain of “public works”.

5.0.4 In each surveyed rural household, it was ascertained for each person aged 15 or more
(a) whether he or she had sought work in public works during the last 365 days, and, if
so, whether he or she had got such work or not
(b) if so, for how many days, and the wages received in cash and kind
(c) if not, whether he or she had made any complaint to any authority, and if so, whether
he or she had received any compensation.
Note that in determining whether a person had got work in public works, the duration of work
engaged in on any particular day was not considered.

5.1 Status of work in public works, 2005-06 and 2006-07

5.1.1 Per 1000 numbers of the 15+ rural population who had got work in public works, who
had sought but not got such work, and who had not sought such work at all, are shown in
Table 20R of Appendix A at all-India level for each MPCE class, and in Table 21R of
Appendix A for major States, separately for males, females, and both sexes combined.

5.1.2 At all-India level, the estimated percentage of persons seeking work in public works
(1000 minus col.5 entry in Table P22) increased by about 2-3 percentage points for males but
by less than one percentage point for females since 2005-06. For males, the estimated
percentages of those getting work and those seeking but not getting work have both increased
by about 1 percentage point. The estimated proportion of those getting work shows an
increase from 60 to 72 per 1000 for males and from 29 to 35 per 1000 for females.

5.2.1 The proportions (numbers per 1000) of male and female rural population of age 15 or
more getting work and seeking but failing to get work in public works (PW) during the last
365 days are shown in Fig 6M and 6F for each of 12 MPCE classes. It is seen that
o The percentage of males seeking work in public works fell more or less steadily from
about 48% in the lowest MPCE class to only 4% in the highest. For females the variation
in the percentage seeking work in public works was less systematic.
o The percentage of males getting work in public works was over 35% in the lowest MPCE
class, with no other MPCE class showing a percentage higher than 18%. Except in the
lowest two MPCE classes, males who sought but failed to get work exceeded those who
succeeded in getting work.



o In the lowest and the second lowest MPCE class, the percentage of male work seekers
getting work was 74% and 52% respectively. The propensity of getting work by the
work seekers reduced for the rural male people of higher MPCE class.

5.3 Status of work in public works: inter-State variation

5.3.1 Variation among the major States in percentages of population getting and seeking but
not getting work in public works (PW) is shown in Figs 7M and 7F.
6
The highest proportions
of males seeking work in public works are seen in West Bengal, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and
Bihar (28-30%), and among these, the proportion of those who failed to get work among
those who sought work is highest in Bihar, followed by Jharkhand and Rajasthan. Among
females, seeking of work in public works was most common in Rajasthan (24%) and
Chhattisgarh (22%), while the proportion not getting work among those seeking work was
again highest in Bihar, among States where seeking of such work was relatively common.




5.3.2 The number of persons of the category “got work in public works” appearing in the
all-India sample was 8014 in all – 5790 males and 2224 females. The number of males in the
“got work” category appearing in the sample was less than 300 in all except a few States and
less than 100 in 4 major States. The number of females getting work in public works who

The National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (2005) came into force initially in 200 districts, guaranteeing
100 days of employment in a financial year to any rural household whose adult members are willing to do
unskilled manual work. The number of districts under NREGA during 2006-07 varied widely from State to State
and this is reflected in the inter-State variations noted in this chapter.
Participation of Rural Population in Public Works

appeared in the sample was less than 150 in all except a few States and less than 50 in 7
major States. In view of the small sample counts, the State-level estimates of proportions of
persons getting work in public works are likely to have large standard errors and hence
should be used with caution.



5.4 Average number of days worked and average wages received

5.4.1 Table 22R of Appendix A show average number of days worked and average wages
received by those getting work in public works for persons in different MPCE classes, while
Table 23R gives the State-level averages.

2005-06 17 18 17 56 54 55

5.4.2 The average number of days worked was within the range 15-23 days in most of the
MPCE classes for both males and females (see Table 22R) but was noticeably low (8 days)
for the lowest MPCE class
7
. Inter-State variation was more pronounced than variation across
MPCE classes, the averages for males+females ranging from 8 days for West Bengal and 11-
12 days for Karnataka and Tamil Nadu to 43 for Gujarat and 56 for Haryana (see Table 23R).

5.4.3 Average wage received per day in public works during 2006-07 was estimated as
Rs.61 compared to Rs.55 during 2005-06. Average wages received per day were within the
range Rs.50-70 for males and Rs.45-70 for females in the majority of the 15 major States.
There was very little variation over MPCE classes in this respect.

5.4.4 Tables 24R and 25R of Appendix A show, respectively, variation over MPCE classes
and over States in estimated proportions of persons – among those who had not got work in
public works – who reported that they had made a complaint to the authorities in this regard.
No surveyed household reported any compensation received from the government for not

presented in this summary of findings as the numbers of reporting persons on which they are
based are very small.

NOTES ON TABLES


Estimates are provided separately for rural and urban sectors of different States.

States for which detailed tables are provided: As explained in Chapter One, paragraphs
1.1.6 and 1.1.7, detailed tables have been provided for a sector (rural or urban) of a State/UT if
at least 300 households have been surveyed in that sector of that State/UT. In addition,
estimates are provided, according to established practice, for (i) the “Group of North-Eastern
States” as a whole, which includes Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram,
Nagaland, Sikkim and Tripura, but excludes Assam, and (ii) the “Group of UTs” as a whole,
which includes all the Union Territories, viz., Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Chandigarh, Dadra
& Nagar Haveli, Daman & Diu, Lakshadweep and Pondicherry. As a result, (a) tables for only
one sector are provided for some States, and there are States for which tables for neither sector
are provided, (b) the all-India estimates are based on the data from all States and UTs, but
counts of sample households and estimated number of households for all-India will not tally
with the totals for the States and UTs for which tables are provided here, and (c) there are
North-Eastern States (such as Mizoram) for which tables for one sector are presented here as the
number of surveyed households in that sector is not less than 300, although data for Mizoram is
also included in the estimate for the Group of North-Eastern States as a whole.

“0” estimates of per 1000 number of households (or persons): If there are no sample
households in a particular category, the estimated proportion of households of that category
becomes 0. Estimated numbers per 1000 are also shown as 0 when they are greater than 0 but
less than 0.5, and so become 0 when rounded to the nearest integer.

To combine per capita estimates for rural and urban sectors of any State, either the estimated
population figures (given in Tables 3R and 3U) for the two sectors, or the population figures
obtained from any other source, may be used as weights. To combine per household estimates
for two sectors, the estimated numbers of households (given, for instance, in Table 2R and
2U) for the two sectors may be used as weights. Similar calculations may be made to combine
the per capita or per household estimates for any two States, e.g., Bihar and Jharkhand.

Estimation Procedure

Sample Design and Estimation Procedure

1. Introduction

1.1 The National Sample Survey (NSS), set up by the Government of India in 1950 to
collect socio-economic data employing scientific sampling methods, conducted its sixty-third
round survey from 1
st
July 2006 to 30
th
June 2007.

1.2 The sixty-third round of NSS was earmarked for collection of data on economic and
operational characteristics of enterprises in the service sector (excluding trade) and also on
household consumer expenditure. All service sector enterprises, which are not covered under
the Annual Survey of Industries (ASI), were under coverage of the survey. Government and
public sector undertakings were not under survey coverage.

1.3 The last survey of service sector enterprises had been conducted in the 57
th
round of
NSS during July 2001 to June 2002. The 63
rd
round survey was basically a repetition of the
57
th
round survey in terms of concepts and definitions. However, the financial sector was
included in the coverage of this round.

2. Outline of Survey Programme

2.1 Geographical coverage: The survey covered the whole of the Indian Union except (i)
Leh (Ladakh) and Kargil districts of Jammu & Kashmir (central sample), (ii) interior villages
of Nagaland situated beyond five kilometres of the bus route and (iii) villages in Andaman
and Nicobar Islands which remain inaccessible throughout the year.

2.2 Period of survey and work programme: The period of survey was of one year duration
and was divided into four sub-rounds of three months duration each as follows:

sub-round 1 : July - September 2006
sub-round 2 : October - December 2006
sub-round 3 : January - March 2007
sub-round 4 : April - June 2007

In each of these four sub-rounds, equal number of sample villages/ blocks (First Stage Units
or FSUs) were allotted for survey with a view to ensuring uniform spread of sample FSUs
over the entire survey period. Attempts were made to survey each FSU during the sub-round
to which it was allotted. Because of the arduous field conditions, this restriction was not
strictly enforced in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Lakshadweep, and rural areas of
Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland.

2.3 Schedules of enquiry: The following schedules of enquiry were canvassed:

Schedule 0.0 : List of households and non-agricultural enterprises
Schedule 2.345 : Service sector enterprises (excluding trade)
Schedule 1.0 : Consumer expenditure


B- 2 Appendix B
NSS Report No. 527: Household Consumer Expenditure in India, 2006-07
2.3.1 Participation of States: In this round all the States and Union Territories except
Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Dadra & Nagar Haveli, Chandigarh, Lakshadweep and Andhra
Pradesh (for Schedule 1.0) participated at least on an equal matching basis, as shown below:

Nagaland (U) : triple
U.P., J & K, Manipur : double
Kerala, Goa, Maharashtra (U) : one and half
Remaining States/ UTs : equal

3. Sample Design

3.1 Outline of sample design for the consumer expenditure survey

A stratified multi-stage design was adopted for the 63
rd
round survey. The first stage units
(FSU) were the 2001 Census villages (Panchayat wards in case of Kerala) in the rural sector
and Urban Frame Survey (UFS) blocks in the urban sector. In addition, for the newly
declared towns and outgrowths (OGs) in Census 2001 for which UFS had not been done, a
separate list was prepared and used as a frame for such towns and OGs in the urban sector.
For these towns and OGs the whole town/OG was considered as an FSU. The ultimate stage
units (USU) were households/ service sector enterprises in both sectors. In the case of large
villages/ towns/ blocks requiring hamlet-group (hg)/ sub-block (sb) formation, an
intermediate stage was the selection of hgs/ sbs from each FSU.

The list of villages as per Census 2001 was used as frame for the rural sector.

In the urban sector, three kinds of frames were used:
(a) For the 27 towns with population 10 lakhs or more (as per Census 2001), EC-98 was used
as frame.
(b) For other UFS towns, the latest available list of UFS blocks was used as frame.
(c) For non-UFS towns list of such towns/ OGs was used as frame.

3.2 Stratification
Within each district of a State/ UT, two basic strata were formed: (i) rural stratum comprising
all rural areas of the district and (ii) urban stratum comprising all the urban areas of the
district. However, if there were one or more towns with population 10 lakhs or more as per
population Census 2001 in a district, each of them formed an additional basic stratum and the
remaining urban areas of the district were considered as another basic stratum. There are 27
towns with population 10 lakhs or more at all-India level as per Census 2001.

3.3 Sub-stratification
3.3.1 Rural sector
If ‘r’ be the sample size allocated for a rural stratum, the number of sub-strata formed was
‘r/2’. The villages within a district as per frame were first arranged in ascending order of
population. Then sub-strata 1 to ‘r/2’ were demarcated in such a way that each sub-stratum
comprised a group of villages of the arranged frame and had more or less equal population.

3.3.2 Urban sector

Sample Design and Estimation Procedure B- 3

NSS Report No. 527: Household Consumer Expenditure in India, 2006-07
(a) For the 27 cities where EC-98 frame was used: A number of sub-strata were formed
within each stratum based on EC-98 information as under:
sub-
stratum
description
1 having at least one establishment (i.e. enterprise with at least one hired worker) of
Financial sector (NIC 2004 codes: 659, 66, 67) under coverage of survey
2 all FSUs, excluding those in the already formed sub-stratum 1, having at least one
establishment under coverage of survey belonging to any of the NIC 2004
codes: 72, 73, 92
3 all FSUs, excluding those in the already formed sub-strata, having at least one
establishment under coverage of survey belonging to any of the NIC 2004 codes:
61, 6302, 70, 71, 90, 9191, 9199
4 all FSUs, excluding those in the already formed sub-strata, having at least one
establishment under coverage of survey belonging to any of the NIC 2004
codes: 602, 6301, 6303, 6304, 6309, 85
5 all FSUs, excluding those in the already formed sub-strata, having at least one
establishment in any one of the Section H, I, J, K, M, N, O of NIC 2004 under
coverage of survey
6 excluding those in the already formed sub-strata, having at least one own account
enterprise (OAE) i.e. enterprise with no hired worker in any one of the Section H,
I, J, K, M, N, O of NIC 2004 under coverage of survey
7 rest of FSUs of the stratum

(b) For other cities and towns of an urban stratum of a district: Three sub-strata were
formed as follows:
sub-stratum 1: all UFS blocks (as per the latest UFS) identified as Industrial Area (IA)
or Bazar Area (BA) or Hospital Area (HA) or Slum Area (SA).
sub-stratum 2: remaining UFS blocks.
sub-stratum 3: non-UFS towns/ OGs of Census 2001.

3.4 Total sample size: 13997 FSUs were allocated at all-India level for the Central sample
on the basis of investigator strength. For the State sample, 16892 FSUs were allocated.

3.5 Allocation of total samples to States and UTs: The total (all-India) sample size in terms
of number of FSUs was allocated to the States and UTs in proportion to number of workers in
the service sector enterprises as per EC '98 engaged in the activities under coverage of the
survey subject to the availability of investigators ensuring more or less uniform work-load per
investigator. (Hereafter, "workers" will mean workers in service sector enterprises as per EC-
98 engaged in the activities under coverage of this round.)

3.6 Allocation of State/ UT level sample to rural and urban sectors: State/UT level
sample sizes were allocated to rural and urban sectors in proportion to the total number of
workers.

3.7 Allocation to strata: Within each sector of a State/UT, the sample size was allocated to
the different strata in proportion to the stratum population as per Census 2001.

3.8 Allocation to sub-strata
B- 4 Appendix B
NSS Report No. 527: Household Consumer Expenditure in India, 2006-07

3.8.1 Rural sector: Allocation of FSUs to each sub-stratum was 2 except in a few sub-strata.

3.8.2 Urban sector: For the 27 million-plus cities in the urban sector, stratum allocations
were distributed over the sub-strata in proportion to the number of workers.

For other urban strata, a maximum of 2 FSUs were allocated to sub-stratum 3. The remainder
of the stratum allocation was divided among the sub-strata 1 & 2 in proportion to the number
of FSUs in the sub-strata, with double weightage to sub-stratum 1. The minimum sub-stratum
allocation was 2 for sub-strata 1 & 2.
3.9 Selection of FSUs: The sample was drawn in the form of two independent sub-samples in
each stratum × sub-stratum.
3.9.1 Rural sector
FSUs were selected by Probability Proportional to Size With Replacement (PPSWR) with
size as ‘other workers’ (i.e. total workers minus household industry workers minus
agricultural labourers minus cultivators) as per Census 2001.

3.9.2 Urban sector
(a) For the 27 million-plus cities: FSUs were selected by PPSWR with number of workers as
size.
(b) For other cities/towns: FSUs were selected by SRSWOR.

3.10.1 Formation and selection of hamlet-groups/ sub-blocks: Large villages were
divided into a suitable number of “hamlet-groups” (hg’s) and large blocks into a suitable
number of sub-blocks (sb’s) as follows. The approximate present population (P) and
approximate total number of non-agricultural enterprises (E) for the whole FSU were
ascertained first from knowledgeable persons. The values of ‘p’ and ‘e’ were obtained from
the table below and the higher of the two values was taken as the number of hg’s/ sb’s to be
formed.

population
(P)
p no. of non-agricultural
enterprises (E)

1600 - 1999 5 160 - 199 5
2000 - 2399 6 200 - 239 6
and so on … and so on …

However, enterprises belonging to Segment 9
1
, if any, were excluded from the value of ‘E’.

3.10.2 For rural areas of Himachal Pradesh, Sikkim and Poonch, Rajouri, Udhampur, Doda
districts of Jammu and Kashmir and Idukki district of Kerala, there was no “enterprise
criterion” and the number of hamlet-groups was decided as follows.

approximate present population no. of hg’s to

All non-agricultural enterprises in the FSU having 50 or more workers and having operated at least one day
during the 365 days preceding the date of survey constituted Segment 9.

and so on … …

3.10.3 Hamlet-groups/ sub-blocks were formed in a sample FSU in such a way that they had
more or less equal population, and were clearly identifiable in terms of physical landmarks.

3.10.4 In FSUs where hamlet-groups/ sub-blocks were formed, three were selected for listing
of households in the following manner. The one with the maximum number of service sector
enterprises under survey coverage (or with the maximum number of non-agricultural
enterprises, if there was no service sector enterprise, or with the maximum percentage share
of population, if there was no non-agricultural enterprise) was selected and termed Segment
1; from the remaining hg’s/sb’s, two more were selected with SRSWOR and combined to
constitute Segment 2. Listing and selection of enterprises/ households was done separately
for Segment 1 and Segment 2.

3.10.5 Formation of second-stage strata and allocation of households for Schedule 1.0
Households listed in the selected villages were selected into three second-stage strata and
households listed in each urban block into two second-stage strata as shown in the table
below. 6 households were selected for survey in a rural FSU and 4 households in an urban
FSU. Where hamlet-groups/ sub-blocks were formed, equal numbers of households were
selected from each segment. The meanings of X and A are explained at the end of the table.

X: For each State/UT, a cut-off point ‘X’ (in hectares) was determined from NSS 59
th

round data in such a way that the top 20% of rural households possessed land ≥ X.

Report No. 527(63/1.0/1)

Household Consumer Expenditure in India, 2006-07

NSS 63rd Round (July 2006 – June 2007)

National Sample Survey Organisation Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation Government of India
October 2008

Preface
The National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO) conducted an all-India survey of households and unorganised service sector enterprises in the 63rd round of NSS during July 2006 – June 2007. The subject of the household survey was household consumer expenditure. Surveys on consumer expenditure are being conducted quinquennially on a large sample of households from the 27th round (October 1972 – September 1973) onwards. Apart from these quinquennial surveys, the NSSO has annually collected information on consumer expenditure from a smaller sample of households since the 42nd round (July 1986 – June 1987). The 63rd round consumer expenditure survey belongs to this annual series. The report presents data on both level of consumption – measured by the sum of monetary values of goods and services consumed per month by households – and the composition of total consumption by commodity group. As is the practice in NSS surveys, not only average levels of consumption but also the distribution of households and persons over different ranges of consumption level are presented, separately for rural and urban areas of different States of the country. Besides the details on consumer expenditure, the schedule of enquiry for the 63rd Round also integrated the module on participation of the rural population in the public works. Chapter One of the report serves as the introduction. Chapter Two explains the concepts and definitions used in the survey. Chapter Three gives the main findings on level and pattern of consumption. Chapter Four discusses other aspects of level of living such as structure type, energy used for cooking and lighting, and literacy. Chapter Five deals with participation of the rural population in public works. Detailed tables at the State and all-India level are given in Appendix A, while the sample design and the estimation procedure are explained in Appendix B. A facsimile of the schedule used for data collection is given as Appendix C. The Survey Design and Research Division (SDRD) of the NSSO undertook the development of the survey methodology, survey instruments and drafting of the report. The field work was carried out by the Field Operations Division (FOD) of NSSO while the data processing and tabulation work was handled by the Data Processing Division (DPD) of NSSO. The Coordination and Publication Division (CPD) coordinated various activities pertaining to the survey. I am thankful to the members of the then Governing Council of NSSO, as well as to the members of the Steering Committee of National Sample Surveys, and to the Working Group for NSS 63rd round for their valuable guidance at various stages of survey activities from designing of the questionnaire to the preparation of this report. I also place on record my thanks to various officers of different divisions of the NSSO involved in the preparation of this report. I hope the report will prove useful to planners, policy makers, academicians and researchers. Suggestions from readers for improvement of the content of the report will be highly appreciated. New Delhi September 2008 P.K. Ray Director General & Chief Executive Officer NSSO

One of the most important products of the NSS consumer expenditure survey is the distribution of the rural or urban households of India or any State/UT by classes of MPCE. which is not possible through the knowledge of the population average alone. Under the pattern of consumption is discussed: (a) shares of various food and non-food groups in total expenditure. and allows the NSS to build up the distribution of persons by their MPCE (i. 3.

Usually.1.Chapter Three Findings on Consumption 3. the concept of per capita expenditure or income is used for comparison of living standards between countries or regions.2 The NSS concept of MPCE. the value as well as the quantity of consumption is discussed. Such a distribution of population enables the study of aspects such as poverty and economic inequality of populations. 3.4 The discussion on level of consumption as presented below covers: (a) relationship between MPCE and household size. This gives us a synoptic view of how the households are clustered at different levels of living. 3. Much of this chapter is concerned with the estimates of household monthly per capita consumer expenditure (MPCE). For obvious reasons. 12 classes are formed for presentation of the results.527: Household Consumer Expenditure in India.
