Following the 73rd and 74th Constitutional Amendments in 1992, local bodies have been empowered to prepare plans for economic development and social justice. The need for a deeper understanding of local economic activities to complement global ones has thus become important.
This book deals with the methodological details of estimating district income. District officers are ideally positioned to arrive at a reasonable estimated of district domestic product. They however require a great deal of support.
This book has been prepared keeping in mind the practical problems each Directorate of economics and Statistics faces with regard to data collection and compilation. It will also be of use to research scholars interested in economic activities at the district level.
