1.00 Introduction:

Socio-Economic Survey is considered one of the most important sources of statistical data on household expenditure and income. It also includes other data on the status of housing, individual and household characteristics, and living conditions. ‘Survey’ refers to a study of a particular subject in a particular area or region. A socio-economic survey is the scientific study of various issues of social and economic aspects of society.

A socio-economic survey is the mixed process of social and economic situations. It is the process through which systematic analysis of people living in a definite society can be made on the basis of their capacity to work, their income, education, and occupation. Hence, through the process of study of socio-economic survey emphasis has been made to study scientifically or systematically any subject by gaining practical or empirical knowledge. A socio-economic survey is determined only by the socio-economic situations of the individuals.

A socio-economic survey is the part and parcel of the educational sphere. Through a systematic study of the villagers through socio-economic survey, various actions can be taken to raise the standard of living of the villagers. And this plays a pivotal role in the development of a village or a country as a whole. At length, a socio-economic survey helps in finding out the problems faced by the individuals in the society and also how to resolve these issues by removing the problems, so as to progress of developed societies.

2.00 Background of the Study:

2.01A short description of Lakhimpur District:

This study is carried out in the Dhakuakhna area, a sub-division of the Lakhimpur district. The district covers an area of 2277 Sqkm out of which 2257 Sqkm is rural and 20 Sqkm is urban. As per the 2011Census of India, the total population of the Lakhimpur district is 10, 42,137 of which 50.8% are male and 49.2% are female approximately. The average literacy rate of the Lakhimpur district is 77.20%. Lakhimpur District is situated on the north bank of the River Brahmaputra and is said to be the ‘Gateway of Arunachal Pradesh’.

2.02 A short description of the Surveyed area:

Nabakatharbari village is situated on the bank of river Charikuria, under Dhakuakhana Circle of Lakhimpur district. The village is situated to the north of the Lakhimpur district. Nabakatharbari is in the domain of the Dhakuakhana post office. The village is bounded on the east by Dhakuakhana town and Dhakuakhana sub-division Police station, on the west by Basudeva Than, on the north by Padumoni Than and National Highway No.15, and on the south by the river Charikuria.

2.04 Background of the people of the Surveyed area:

Nabakatharbari village which is situated under Dhakuakhana Circle of Lakhimpur district consists of a diversified population of several ethnic communities including Ahom, Kalita, Sut, Koch, Chutia, Mising. The living standards of some of the people of the village are low and the main source of livelihood is daily wages, agriculture, and business. Almost all the people of the locality depend on the bazaar (market) to buy essential commodities. Since they have to buy all the essential commodities; they are not at all capable of more sizeable investments.

A part of the village is situated on the bank of river Charikuria, therefore the natural environment of the village is very fascinating and charming. But the soil of this village is not favorable for agriculture, since it is situated on a sandbank. Moreover, most of the people of the village have limited land. Few people of the locality engaged in cattle rearing and poultry farming in limited numbers like cows, goats, pigs, hens, ducks, etc.

Few people in the village have kaccha houses made of bamboo and mud-plastered and few government establishments are also noticed. In the case of drinking water, except few, most household uses a hand pump. The Sanitary arrangement of the village is satisfactory.

There is an Anganwadi Kendra, for the care as well as the welfare of the children in the village. There is a primary school for primary education, a higher secondary school, a Girl’s College, and also a private school in the area. There is a playground and also a library in the locality for fun, amusement, and other outdoor physical activity.

The village is inhabited by various ethnic groups following diverse faith but the majority of the village population are Hindus.

4.00 Procedure of information (sample) collection:

I went to Nabakatharbari under Dhakuakhana Circle on 16-08-2021 at 2.00 pm for a socio-economic survey. There, I individually went to six households and met the head of the family with the questionnaires prepared by the college’s socio-economic survey committee.
