Item 2: household type:
At the listing stage, for the rural areas, all the households will be categorized under three groups namely (i) households self-employed in non-agriculture, (ii) regular labour households and (iii) other households, depending on their means of livelihood. Codes 1, 2, and 9 are assigned respectively to the different households belonging to these groups and the appropriate codes will be recorded in column (5), block 6 of the schedule 0.1. But at the time of detailed enquiry (i.e. when schedules 10 and 1.0 will be canvassed in the sample household) 'household type' code. Out of the following five different household type codes, the one appropriate for sample household will be chosen:
Households self-employed in non-agricultural occupations - 1
Agricultural labour households - 2
Other labour households - 3
Households self-employed in agricultural occupations - 4
Other households - 9
The households categorized as belonging to the 'means of livelihood' code-1 in the schedule 0.1 will be assigned the household type 'self-employed in non-agricultural occupations' and code 1 will be recorded against item 3. The rural labour households in the schedule 0.1 i.e. those assigned means of livelihood code 2, will be further classified into two groups- 'agricultural labour' households and 'other labour' households for assigning the appropriate household type codes against this item. The households to be categorized as the 'agricultural labour' households will be those which earned 50 p.c. or more of their total income during the last 365 days from wage paid manual labour in agriculture and for such households, type code-2 will be recorded against this item. The remaining households will be categorized as the 'other labour' households and for them code -3 will be recorded. The households assigned the means of livelihood code 9 in the schedule 0.1, will be further regrouped into households 'self-employed in agricultural occupations' will be those which earned 50 p.c. or more of their total income from self-employment in agricultural occupations during the last 365 days preceding the date of survey and for such households code 4 will be recorded against this item.
The remaining households will be categorized as 'other' households and for them code 9 will be recorded. Thus, the selected households will be grouped into five different household types for recording the relevant household type code against item 3 of this block. At the time of detailed enquiry the means of livelihood code assigned at the listing stage will be verified and the code assigned at that time will be corrected, if found wrong. But no substitution of household is to be made in such cases.
