NSS Report No. 473: Literacy and Levels of Education in India, 1999-2000

PREFACE
The National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO) has been carrying out all-India
household surveys on Consumer Expenditure and Employment & Unemployment with a
large sample usually once in every five years. The sixth such survey was conducted in
the 55th round (July 1999-June 2000) - which covered Non-agricultural Enterprises in the
Informal Sector in addition. The schedule of enquiry on Consumer Expenditure for the
survey was, more or less, similar to that adopted in previous quinquennial rounds.
The present report is the eleventh in the series of reports through which the results
on consumer expenditure survey are being released. This report brings out the results
pertaining to literacy and educational levels. In the report comparison for these estimates
has been made with the results of NSS 50th round: July 1993 June 1994 and also with
the Population Census 2001 estimates. It gives, broadly, estimates at State /UT and allIndia level for males and females separately and for both types of residence (i.e., rural and
urban). It also provides the break-up of the estimates by MPCE class, by social group, by
household type, by religion, by size class of land possessed (rural only) and by age.
This report has four sections and one appendix. Section 1 of the report is
introductory while Section 2 presents Sample Design and Estimation Procedure. Section 3
gives Concepts and Definitions. Section 4 discusses Summary of Findings. The detailed
tables are provided in the Appendix.
The Field Operations Division (FOD) of the Organisation conducted the fieldwork
for the survey. The collected data were processed and tabulated by the Data Processing
Division (DPD) of the NSSO. The Survey Design & Research Division (SDRD) of the
NSSO developed the survey design and prepared the report.
I am grateful to the Chairman and members of the Governing Council, Heads of
various Divisions of the NSSO and their colleagues for the contribution made in
preparing the report.
Comments/suggestions from the readers will be most welcome.

Section 1
Introduction
1.1 Background: Literacy rate is generally accepted as one of the basic indicators of
progress of the population; and educational level of a population is one of the most
important determinants of its quality.
In a vast country like India, the literacy rate, as well as educational level, exhibits wide
variation by different socio-economic categories like region, gender, social group, etc.
The Government of India is making planned efforts from time to time to raise literacy
levels through various schemes of universal school education, adult education, nonformal education, literacy mission campaigns, etc. For the purpose, necessary data on
literacy at appropriate levels is required.
1.2 Availability of data from other sources: Data on literacy and educational levels of
the population are being collected as a part of the demographic particulars of the
household members in most of the survey rounds of NSS. In the 42nd round (July 1986June 1987), a comprehensive survey on education was carried out by NSSO to study the
extent of participation of children and youth in the formal and non-formal educational
systems including drop-outs at various levels. Subsequently, a survey on literacy was
taken up during the 47th round (July-December 1991) of NSS. During the survey, a
schedule was canvassed for ascertaining literacy status of persons and, in fact, literacy
tests were conducted for certain categories of persons. Further, during the 52nd round
(July 1995-June 1996) of NSS survey information on participation in education was
collected. The other sources of literacy and educational statistics in the country are the
Census of India, statistics compiled by the Ministry of Human Resources Development,
District Literacy Surveys of the "Total Literacy Campaigns" of the National Literacy
Mission and surveys and reports of National Council of Educational Research and
Training (NCERT).
1.3 Geographical coverage: The geographical coverage of the survey was the whole of
the Indian Union except Ladakh and Kargil districts of Jammu & Kashmir, 768 interior
villages of Nagaland and 172 villages in Andaman & Nicobar Islands which remain
inaccessible throughout the year. A few other areas of Jammu & Kashmir were also
excluded from the survey coverage owing to unfavourable field conditions.
1.4 Sub-round: The survey period of one year was, as usual, divided into four subrounds of three months each as indicated below and equal number of sample villages and
blocks were allotted to each sub-round.
Sub-round 1:
Sub-round 2:

October-December 1999
January-March 2000
April-June 2000
NSS Report No. 473: Literacy and Levels of Education in India, 1999-2000

1.5 Sample Design: The sample design adopted in the survey was a two- stage stratified
design. The first stage units were 1991 census villages (panchayat wards for Kerala) for
rural sector and Urban Frame Survey (UFS) blocks for urban sector. The second stage
units were households in both the sectors for consumer expenditure and employment
unemployment surveys. However, there was an intermediate stage, as usual in the earlier
rounds, for the larger sample villages or blocks. A larger sample village or block was
split into a number of hamlet-groups or sub-blocks suitably to make the quantum of
fieldwork manageable. The details of sample design and estimation procedure are given
in Section 2.
This report brings out the results pertaining to literacy and educational levels on the basis
of the sixth quinquennial survey on Household Consumer Expenditure that was carried
out during July 1999 to June 2000. In the consumer expenditure schedule information on
level of education was collected for each of the members of sample households. This
report presents the estimates of literacy rates and educational levels based on such
information.
An attempt is also made in this report to compare these estimates with the previous
quinquennial round (NSS 50th round: July 1993 June 1994) and also with the Population
Census 2001 estimates. The report also makes an attempt to find the relation between
literacy rate and educational level, on the other hand, some other characteristics like sex,
type of residence, etc, on the other. In the way, it will provide, broadly, estimates at State
/UT and all-India level for males and females separately and for both types of residence
(i.e., rural and urban). It will also provide the break-up of the estimates by MPCE class,
by social group, by household type, by religion, by size class of land possessed (rural
only) and by age (in Appendix Table 6).
Although households were the ultimate stage units in each of the surveys, educational
level is a person characteristic. The estimates in this report have been presented by sex.
Therefore, it is imperative to have an idea of number of sample persons by sex that were
used to generate the estimates. However, the number of sample persons may not tally
exactly to the tables presented in this report with the other tables already released since
these tables are generated excluding the not recorded cases (which includes inadmissible
data for classificatory variables).
1.6 Contents in brief: The present report gives the estimates for educational levels and
literacy rates by MPCE, household type, social group, religion, size class of land
possessed (rural only) for male, female and combined separately for rural and urban areas
and by States/UTs. It contains three sections and one appendix. Section One gives
introduction and Section Two sample design and estimation procedures for NSS 55th
round. Section Three deals with the concepts and definitions and various items / terms
used in this report. Section Four brings out the summary of Survey Findings. Appendix
gives the detailed tables, which have been used to prepare this report.
It should be stated, however, that the quality of data on literacy and levels of education
collected as part of a survey, on Consumer Expenditure, which is summarised in this
report, may not be as high as those collected in NSS Rounds 42 or 47 say, when the
enquiries were focused on literacy and/or level of education.

Section 2
Sample Design and Estimation Procedure
2.1 Sample Design

2.1.3 Stratification

2.1.1 General: A stratified sampling design


was adopted for selection of the sample firststage units (FSUs). The FSUs were villages
(panchayat wards for Kerala) for rural areas
and Urban Frame Survey (UFS) blocks for
urban areas. The Ultimate stage units (USUs)
were households for the consumer
expenditure schedule. The households were
selected by the method of circular systematic
sampling with equal probability from the
corresponding frame in the FSU. For the
purpose of systematic sampling, households
in the frame of second stage stratum 2 are
arranged by means of livelihood and land
possessed classes for rural samples and by
means of livelihood and MPCE classes for
urban samples. Large FSUs were subdivided
into hamlet-groups (rural)/ sub-blocks
(urban) that were grouped into two segments,
and USUs were selected independently from
each of these segments.

2.1.3.1 Rural: Two special strata were


formed at the State/ UT level, viz.,
Stratum 1: all FSUs with population
between 1 to 100, and
Stratum 2: FSUs with population more
than 15,000.
[Note: The above two strata were spread
across a given State and were not confined to
any particular administrative division within
the State.]
The above noted strata of either type
were formed if at least 50 such FSUs were
there in the respective frames. Otherwise,
they were merged with the general strata.
While
forming
general
strata
(consisting of FSUs other than those covered
under strata 1 & 2), efforts were made to treat
each district as a separate stratum. If
limitation of sample size did not allow the
formation of so many strata, smaller districts
within a particular NSS region were merged
to form a stratum. Each district with rural
population of 2 million or more as per 1991
Census (1.8 million or more as per 1981
Census in case of Jammu & Kashmir) was
split into a number of strata.

2.1.2 Sampling frame for first stage units:


List of villages (panchayat wards for Kerala)
as per 1991 Census and latest lists of UFS
blocks were respectively used for selection of
rural and urban sample FSUs. For selection
of sample villages from the State of Jammu
& Kashmir, list of villages as per 1981
Census was used as the sampling frame. All
the uninhabited villages of the country as per
1991 Census, interior villages of Nagaland
situated beyond 5 kms of a bus route and
inaccessible villages of Andaman & Nicobar
Islands were left out of the survey coverage
of the NSS 55th round.

NSS Regions as follows:

Stratum

1, 3, 5 *

for each State/UT and sector (i.e, rural/


urban) was allocated equally among the four
sub-rounds. Sample FSUs for each sub-round
were selected afresh in the form of two
independent sub-samples. The details of
allocation and survey of FSUs, households
and persons are given in Statement 0.

2.1.5
Allocation of first-stage units
(FSU's): State/ UT level rural sample size
was allocated among the rural strata in
proportion to population. State/ UT level
urban sample was first allocated among the
three classes of towns (i.e, 10 lakh +, 50000
to less than 10 lakhs and less than 50,000) in
proportion to population. Then sample
allocation for each of the three classes of
towns, within an NSS region, was further
allocated between two stratum types
consisting of - (i) HA/ IA/ BA blocks, and (ii)
the rest in proportion to total number of FSUs
in the respective frames with double
weightage given to the first category of
blocks. Stratum level allocations for both
rural and urban areas of a sub-round were
made in even numbers in order to facilitate
selection of FSUs in the form of two
independent
sub-samples.
Sub-sample
numbers were 1 & 2 for sub-round 1; 3 & 4
for sub-round 2; 5 & 6 for sub-round 3 and 7
& 8 for sub-round 4.

* Stratum numbers 3, 4, 5 and 6 remain void if there is

2.1.6 Selection of first-stage units: For each


sub-round, sample FSUs from each stratum
were selected in the form of 2 independent
sub-samples by following circular systematic
sampling with (a) probability proportional to
population for all rural strata other than
stratum 1, and (b) equal probability for rural
stratum 1 as well as all urban strata. Thus,
stratum level allocation of FSUs was a
multiple of 8.

only one city in an NSS region with a population of 10


lakhs or more.

If sample size was not adequate for forming


so many strata, all blocks of stratum 7 were
merged with those of stratum 8 and all blocks
of stratum 9 were merged with those of
stratum 10.
2.1.4 Sample size : A total number of 10,384
FSUs was selected for survey in the Central
sample at all-India level (rural & urban
combined) in the 55th round. For State
sample, there was normally an equal
matching. Exceptions were only for Nagaland
(urban), Delhi, Goa and Maharashtra (urban)
where the State sample size was higher than
Central sample. Sample for the whole round

2.1.7 Formation of hamlet-groups in large


villages and number of hamlet-groups
selected for survey: Depending upon the
values of approximate present population (P)
and approximate total number of nonagricultural enterprises (E), decision was
taken to divide the FSU into a fixed number
of hamlet-groups (hgs - the term applicable

NSS Report No. 473: Literacy and Levels of Education in India, 1999-2000

for rural samples) / sub-blocks (sbs - the


term applicable for urban samples) as per the

households/ enterprises. Thus, the listing of
households/ enterprises was done only in
segments 1 and 2 of the FSU. The FSU not

2.1.9 Stratification of households : All the


households listed in a segment (both rural &
urban) were stratified into two second stage
strata, viz., affluent households (forming
second stage stratum 1) and the rest (forming
second stage stratum 2). In the rural sector, a
maximum of ten households which were
relatively affluent compared to others and
possessed at least certain item(s) like motor
car/ jeep, colour TV, telephone, etc. or owned
land / livestock in excess of certain limits
were included in second stage stratum 1. In
urban sector, the households having MPCE
(monthly per capita consumer expenditure)
greater than a certain limit for a given
town/city were treated as affluent
households for the present survey and were
included in the frame of second stage stratum
1 and the rest of the urban households were
included in the frame of second stage stratum
2.

the higher of the two values as per the
population and enterprise criteria. If the value
of P was less than 1200 (600 for certain hilly
areas specified above) as well as the value of
E was less than 100 for an FSU, hg/ sb
formation was not resorted to and the whole
FSU was considered for listing. In case hgs/
sbs were formed in the sample FSU, the
same was done by more or less equalizing

2.2.3 ESTIMATES OF AGGREGATE: In


the formulae given in this section, Yis the
estimate of aggregate of any characteristic y
for a given stratum (a), and for a particular
sub-round (q) and sub-sample replicate (r).
These formulae are provided for the general
case of FSUs having two segments 1 and 2.
For the FSUs requiring no hg/ sb formation,
the formula is identical to that given for
segment 1 while the contribution from
segment 2 is taken as zero for estimating a

The formulae for X are obtained similarly by
replacing Y by X and y by x in the above
formulae stated in previous sections.
Note: Estimates for the sub-round Rqr and
R qp have been obtained by replacing Yr and
Yp by Yqr and Yqp , respectively and Xr and
Xp by Xqr and Xqp , respectively.

2.2.3.3 ESTIMATES OF AGGREGATE
FOR THE ROUND (i.e. taking all the 4
sub-rounds together) AT STATE/ UT/

aggregates for the whole round are computed
as the simple average of the sub-round
estimates derived in section 2.2.2, and are
given below:

*Note: In the Round, sub-samples 1, 3, 5 &
7 (in sub-rounds 1 to 4) are combined
together to form sub-sample replicate1
(annual) while sub-samples 2, 4, 6 & 8 (in
sub-rounds 1 to 4) are combined together to
form sub-sample replicate 2 (annual). This
was followed in the remaining sections also.
Stratum level estimate for the Round is
obtained similarly.

Concepts and Definitions

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) miscellaneous goods and
services and durable articles.

3.0
The concepts and definitions
followed in the sixth quinquennial survey on
household consumer expenditure are more or
less the same as in the earlier rounds. The
concepts and definitions of the terms used or
relevant in the report have been expanded
below.

3.4 For groups (i) and (ii), the total value of


consumption is derived by aggregating the
monetary value of goods actually consumed
during the reference period. An item of
clothing and footwear is considered to be
consumed if it is brought into maiden or first
use during the reference period.
The
consumption may be out of (a) purchases
made during the reference period or earlier;
(b) home grown stock; (c) receipts in
exchange of goods and services; (d) any other
receipt through gift, charity, borrowing; and
(e) free collection. Home produce is evaluated
at the ex farm or ex factory prices. For
evaluating the consumption of the items of
group (iii) i.e., items categorised as
miscellaneous goods and services and durable
goods, a different approach is followed. In
this case, the expenditure made during the
reference period for the purchase of goods
and services is considered to be consumption.

3.1 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 the person
also. Each inmate of a mess, hotel, boarding
and lodging house, hostel, etc., is considered a
single-member household except that a family
living in a hotel (say) is considered to be one
household only; the same applies to
residential staff of such establishments.
3.2 Household size: The size of a household
is the total number of persons in the
household.

3.5 It is pertinent to mention here that the


consumer expenditure of a household on food
items relates to the actual consumption by the
normal resident members of the household
and also by the guests, whether during
ceremonies or otherwise. To avoid double
counting, transfer payments like charity, loan,
advance, etc., made by the household are not
considered consumption for items of groups
(i) and (ii), since transfer receipts of these
items have been taken into account. However,
the item cooked meals is an exception to the
rule. Meals prepared in the household kitchen
and provided to the employees and/or others

3.3 Household consumer expenditure: The


expenditure incurred by a household on
domestic consumption during the reference
period is the household's consumer
expenditure. The household consumer

NSS Report No. 473: Literacy and Levels of Education in India, 1999-2000

15

would automatically get included in domestic


consumption of employer (payer) household.
There is a practical difficulty in estimating the
quantities and values of individual items used
for preparing the meals served to employees
or to 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
normal resident members and of guests and
employees are recorded in the purchaser
household.

households. For items of clothing, footwear,


durable goods, education and medical
(institutional) expenses, data were collected
for the reference period of last 365 days
preceding the date of survey. For the
remaining items, a reference period of last
30 days preceding the date of survey was
used. However, the monthly per capita
consumption expenditure (MPCE) classes
used in this report are based on data
collected for last 365 days for clothing,
footwear, durable goods, education and
medical (institutional) expenses and for last
30 days for the rest of the items.

3.6 This procedure of recording cooked meals


served to others in the expenditure of the
serving households only leads to bias-free
estimates of average per capita consumption
as well as total consumer expenditure.
However, as the proportions of donors and
recipients of free cooked meals are likely to
vary in opposite directions over the
expenditure classes, the nutritional intake
derived from the consumer expenditure
survey data may present a somewhat distorted
picture. These derived nutrition intakes may
get inflated for the rich (net donors) and
somewhat understated for the poor (net
recipients). This point has to be kept in mind
while using the NSS consumer expenditure
data for any nutritional studies relating to the
nutritional status of households.

3.8 Sector : The word sector is used for


the rural-urban demarcation: rural and urban
are the only two sectors as far as this report is
concerned.

3.7 Reference period: Reference period


means the period of time for which data on
consumption was collected. The reference
period used for the survey was a moving
one, varying from household to household,
although it was a fixed length of period.
During the 55th round of NSS, information
on consumption of food, pan, tobacco &
intoxicants was collected independently for
two different reference periods of last 30
days and last 7 days from the same

3.10
Monthly per capita consumer
expenditure (MPCE): For a household, this
is its last 30 days total consumer expenditure
divided by its size. A persons MPCE is
understood as that of the household to which
he or she belongs.

3.9 Major states : This refers to the


following states of India: Andhra Pradesh,
Assam, Bihar, Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka,
Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra,
Orissa, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Uttar
Pradesh and West Bengal.

3.11 MPCE class: The MPCE classes are


normally revised during quinquennial
surveys of Consumer Expenditure. Usually,
12 MPCE classes are formed from a table

giving estimated cumulative percentage


frequency distribution of persons by MPCE
for each sector separately. The upper limits
of these classes correspond broadly to 5%,

Rural
A household was classified as agricultural
labour if its income from that source was
50% or more of its total income. The same
criterion was followed to classify a household
as self-employed in agriculture. A
household was classified as self-employed in
non-agriculture if its income from that
source was greater than that from rural labour
as well as that from all other gainful sources
put together. If a household was not one of
these three types but its income from total
rural labour was greater than that from all
self-employment and from other gainful
sources, it was classified as other labour.
The remaining households were classified as
other households.

Urban
A household was classified as selfemployed, regular wage or salary earning,
or casual labour, according to the major
sources of its income from gainful
employment during the 365 days preceding
the date of survey. A household not having
any income from gainful employment was
classified under others.

3.12 Household type: Rural households


were classified into five types and urban
households into four types on the basis of the
occupations pursued by the household
members. The five types of rural households
are: self-employed in non-agriculture,
agricultural labour, other labour, selfemployed in agriculture, and other
households.
The four types of urban
households are: self-employed, regular wage /
salary earner, casual labour, and other
households.

3.14 Social group: Four social groups were


distinguished - scheduled tribe, scheduled
caste, other backward class, and other
households.
3.15 Land possessed: The area of land
possessed (in hectares) includes land owned,
leased in, and (encroached) land neither
owned nor leased in, but excludes land leased
out. The size classes of land possessed are:

education of a member of the household
refers to the highest course successfully
completed by him/her. The different levels
of education recorded in the Consumer
Expenditure schedule are given below:

(i) when code 13 as well as one of


the codes 10 to 12 are appropriate
code 13 will not be considered.
(ii) when more than one of the codes 10 to

Persons who have attained proficiency in


Oriental languages (e.g., Sanskrit, Persian
etc.) through formal but not the general type
of education will be classified appropriately
at the equivalent level of general education
standard.

3.17 For a person who has studied up to, say,


the first year B.A., his/her educational
attainment will be considered as higher
secondary. For a person who has studied up
to 12th standard but has not appeared for the
final examination or has failed in that
examination, his/her educational attainment
will be considered under 'secondary'.

3.19 Literate and Illiterate: In the NSS


rounds under consideration, a person who
can both read and write a simple message
with understanding in at least one language
was considered as literate. Those who were
not able to do so were considered as "not
literate" or "illiterate". This definition is the
same as that adopted in the decennial
population censuses in the country.

3.18 A person who can both read and write a


simple message with understanding in at
least one language is to be considered
literate. Those who are not able to do so, are
to be considered not literate. There are
persons who achieve literacy through
attending Non-Formal Education Course
(NFEC) or Adult Education Centres (AEC),
Total Literacy Campaign (TLC) and other
similar courses have been given a separate
level. Criteria for deciding primary, middle,
secondary etc. depended on the recognition
of concerned State or Union Territory. For

3.20 Literacy rate: It is defined as the ratio


of literate persons to all persons aged 7+. In
this report, literacy rate has been expressed
in the form of a percentage.

corresponding Census estimates for external


validation. The literacy rates, unless
otherwise specified, are given in this section
for the persons aged 7 years and above. In
Appendix Table 6 the distribution of persons
by level of education for each age group at
all-India level has been provided.
4.2 Variation over MPCE classes:
Statement 1R shows per 1000 distribution of
persons aged 7 years and above by education
level separately for each MPCE class and
sex at all-India level. It is evident that in
rural India the literacy rate is an increasing
function of MPCE for both males and
females and thus for all persons also. Like
the literacy rate, the proportion of persons in
any specific level of education also tends to
rise with MPCE for both males and females.
At all-India level, the proportion of not
literate rural males was 322 out of 1000
males. Among the 678 literate males, only
151 had qualifications secondary and above
in rural areas. Among the females in rural
areas, the literacy rate at all-India level was
only 434 out of which only 64 had
qualifications secondary and above. Overall,
in rural India, 560 persons out of every 1000
persons are literate and out of these 560
persons, only 109 possessed educational
qualification level secondary or above.

Section 4
Summary of Findings
4.1 This section summarizes the results on
literacy and levels of education of persons
classified by different socio-economic
categories like household type, social group,
size class of land possessed (rural only) and
MPCE classes. The discussions are mainly
concentrated at all-India level. However,
overall literacy rates have also been
discussed for all States and UTs. Further, the
results of this round (NSS 55th round) have
been compared with those of the earlier
quinquennial round (NSS 50th round: July
1993 June 1994) on household consumer
expenditure. At the end, the estimates were
compared at State level with the

In urban India, as Statement 1U shows, the


proportion of literates was 798 out of 1000.
Therefore, about one-fifth of the urban
population was not literate. Among the
literates, 325 persons (out of 798) attained
education level secondary and above. This is
much higher compared to rural India.
Among the males, the literacy rate was as
high as 865 out of 1000 while the same for
females was about 72%. The proportions of
persons in each education level were lower
for females than for males. The proportion of
persons in any education level was an

NSS Report No. 473: Literacy and Levels of Education in India, 1999-2000

19

increasing function of MPCE as in rural


areas for each education level and also for
both males and females.

4.5 Variation over size classes of land


possessed (rural): Statement 4 shows the
distribution of persons aged 7 years and
above by level of education, separately for
each size class of land possessed and sex in
rural India. (See also Figure 4R.) It brings
out the fact that literacy rate is a very slowly
increasing function of the area of land
possessed for both males and females and so
for all persons. For the lowest size class of
land possessed the literacy rate of all persons
was 52% while it was 64% for the highest
size class of land possessed. As expected, the
literacy rate for males was much higher than
that of females for any specified size class of
land possessed, the differential being above
20 for different size classes.

4.3 Variation over household types:


Statement 2 shows the distribution of
persons by level of education, separately for
each household type and sex. (See Figures
2R and 2U in this connection.) Accordingly,
in rural India, literacy rate per thousand was
the highest (737) for household type others
followed by self-employed in nonagriculture (630). The rate was the lowest
(426) for agricultural labour households.
These differentials were similar for both
males and females. Similar patterns may be
observed for proportion of persons in each
level of education. In urban India, the
literacy rate was distinctly low for casual
labour households compared to other
households. It was 59% (593 out of 1000) of
persons belonging to casual labour
households compared to the national average
of 80%. For the remaining household types,
the proportions of literates among males,
females or persons were the highest for
regular wage /salary earning households.

4.6 Variation across religions: Statements


5R and 5U show the distribution of persons
aged 7 years and above by level of education
separately for each sector, sex and religion.
(See also Figures 5R and 5U.) It is seen that
the literacy rate was rather low for both
males and females in rural India for Islam
compared to other religions. Hinduism and
others are not much better, especially for
females. In urban India, the literacy rate was
88-89% for males following three religions,
namely, Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism.
Further, males who followed Christianity or
Jainism had a still higher rate of literacy,
94% or more. Here also Islam shows a
lower literacy rate. The picture is similar for
females in urban areas.

4.4 Variation over social groups: Statement


3 presents distributions of persons aged 7
years and above by level of education
separately for each social group and sex.
(See also Figures 3R and 3U.) The pattern of
variation in the literacy rate was almost the
same for both males and females in rural as
well as urban sectors. However, in rural
India, the literacy rate was the lowest for
persons belonging to ST households (42%)
followed by persons belonging to SC
households (47%). But in urban India, the
literacy rate was the lowest for SC
households (66%) followed by ST
households (70%). For both the sectors the
literacy rate was the highest for persons
belonging to social group others.

In rural areas, gender disparity in literacy


rate was very large for Hinduism and Islam,
compared to other religions. The pattern was
similar to some extent in urban areas, but
here the gender disparities were generally
smaller.

4.7 Comparison of literacy rates between


NSS 50th and 55th rounds: Statements 6R
and 6U present the percentage of literates for
each State, UT and all-India separately for
rural and urban areas from NSS 55th and 50th
rounds. These statements reveal the
following points.

are relatively high and are being stabilized


while the literacy rates for females are
increasing.
Figures 6R and 6U depict the literacy rates
based on NSS 55th round on the map of
India.

At all-India level, literacy rate (%) increased


during the period from 1993-94 to 19992000. For males, it increased from 63 to 68
in rural areas and from 85 to 87 in urban
areas.
For females, the corresponding
figures were 36 and 43 in rural areas and 68
and 72 in urban areas. The figures for
persons were 50 and 56 in rural areas and 77
and 80 in urban areas. The changes in
literacy rate over this period for each sex and
residency sector have been depicted in
Figure 1. Such rise in literacy rates was
observed in most States/UTs separately for
rural and urban areas and for males and
females.

In a developing country, it is normally


observed that literacy rates for males are
higher than those for females. It is observed
from the tables presented in this report that
the literacy rate in each state was higher for
males than for females. Similarly, rates for
rural areas were, normally, lower than the
corresponding rates for urban areas.

Among the rural areas of 15 major states,


Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh showed the
highest increase in literacy rate for males and
females over 1993-94 to 1999-2000. The
increase was by 9% for males and by 10%
for females. For females, there was one
more major state, namely, Maharashtra, for
which the increase in literacy rate was 10%.

Among the major States, the rural literacy


rate for all persons was the highest in Kerala.
It was around 90% in both the NSS rounds
50th and 55th. The second highest literacy
rate among the rural areas of major States
was found for Assam (69%). The rate was
the lowest for Bihar (42%) followed by
Andhra Pradseh (46%) and Rajasthan (47%).
The literacy rate was also relatively low
(between 50 and 60%) in the rural areas of
the following States: Karnataka, Madhya
Pradseh, Orissa and Uttar Pradesh.

Among urban areas of the major states, the


increase over 1993-94 to 1999-2000 was
more than the national increase in urban
areas of Karnataka, Rajasthan, Andhra
Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.

Out of a total of 32 States and UTs, there


were only 8 where the rural literacy rate was
80% and above. These States and UTs were
Goa, Kerala, Mizoram, Nagaland, Andaman
& Nicobar Islands, Daman and Diu, Delhi
and Lakshadweep.
In urban areas the variation of literacy rates
across States/UTs was much smaller
compared to the rural areas. It ranged from
70% to 99% over the urban areas of different
States and UTs while it varied from 42-91%
in rural areas. The urban literacy rate (%)

It is worth mentioning that literacy rates for


males had not changed much for most of the
States and UTs although there were some
increases for females. One may like to
conclude that literacy rates for urban males

was very high in Kerala (94), Meghalaya


(92), Mizoram (99), Nagaland (94) and
relatively low in Andhra Pradesh (75), Bihar
(70), Orissa (76), Punjab (79) and Uttar
Pradesh (70).

NSS literacy rate was 73% while census


literacy rate was 76%. Similarly, for females
NSS estimate was 51% and the census
estimate was 54%.
The difference in literacy rate between NSS
55th round and Census 2001 was roughly
similar for males and females for any
State/UT.

4.8 Comparison of literacy rates between


NSS 55th round (1999-2000) and Census
2001 estimates: The comparative statement
of literacy rates between estimates from NSS
55th round and Population Census 2001 is
presented in Statement 7. This statement
does not give the rural-urban break-up.
Rather, it gives the State level comparison.
Broadly speaking, the census and NSS
estimates of literacy rates are close to each
other.
However, NSS estimates are
generally lower than the corresponding
figures from Population Census 2001 for all
major states except Assam and Kerala. In
contrast, NSS estimates for smaller States
and UTs are generally higher than the
corresponding figures of the Population
Census. The reason may be due to the
arduous field conditions prevailing in
Tripura, Jammu & Kashmir and NorthEastern
States.
North-Eastern States
presented similar discrepancies in NSS 47th
round. At all-India level, the difference in
census and NSS estimates of literacy was 3%
for both males and females. For rural males,

For persons, the absolute difference in


literacy rate was more than 5% in Andhra
Pradesh, Assam, Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram,
Nagaland, Orissa and Rajasthan and was less
than 2% in Arunachal Pradesh, Gujarat,
Kerala, Chandigarh, Lakshadweep and
Pondicherr
