Jayaraman, R. (n.d.). The Evolution of Poverty and Inequality in Indian Villages. Retrieved from


There is no statistical basis for generalizing beyond the village studies reviewed. Although we examine a large number of studies, covering a wide range of locations, we do not have a random sample. The study villages were selected for various specific reasons. If they share one common characteristic, it may be that they are, on average, less remotely located than villages are in general. The data collected, moreover, are dissimilar, limiting ready comparisons. One of the challenges in undertaking our review, in fact, has been to interpret the findings of investigators using varying methodologies and wearing differently tinted spectacles. The degree to which their findings can be extrapolated to rural areas in general is thus ultimately a question of judgment and personal inclination.
