Selected socio-economic statistics India, 2011

The 2011 report continues the tradition of collection of socio-economic statistics from decadal population censuses, annual national sample surveys, adhoc-surveys and administration statistics. This report depicts the socio-economic development of the country through the statistical indicators. This is a combined report for the year 2010 and 2011. The Central Statistics Office (CSO) brought out a publication which is a collection of selected indicators titled `Selected Socio-Economic Indicators for India’ for the first time in 1987 recognizing the need to present the socio-economic scenario in figures. As the first publication was found quite useful by the users, CSO started bringing it out regularly with revised title namely `Selected Socio-Economic Statistics, India’ with effect from 1993. CSO is making all the efforts to continuously improve the publication in order to suit the needs of users with the changing global and local socio-economic conditions. The publication consists of eleven chapters depicting data for the different socio-economic sub-sectors.
