A Study on Household Income and Expenditure of Scheduled Tribe

Abstract :

In India, more than 65 percent of the population are living in rural area and most of them are engaged in agricultural and allied activates. Thus the average income and expenditure is also very low, i.e. Rs. 48,097 and Rs. 44,025 in all India level (NCAER 2010). In rural areas, 24 percent of the population are living below the poverty line. Yadav (2006) found that the 47 percent of private consuming expenditure are on goods and services. Objective of this study is to analyse the income and expenditure on scheduled tribe households. Interview method is scheduled for data collection and simple statistical tools are applied for the analysis. This study found that the average monthly income and expenditure are Rs. 5556 and Rs. 7200 per month. This study directly shows that income is low and expenditure is high in tribal area.
