(Info) Amenities in Villages and Households
Amenities in Villages and Households
The tables below give data from Census 2001 on education, health, and communication facilities in Bundelkhand’s villages, and electricity and toilet facilities in households.
One can expect that under most parameters, the situation in 2008 would have been better than what is indicated by census figures, and this is in fact reflected in publications like the MP Human Development reports published after 2001.
However, for the sake of credibility and uniformity that enables meaningful comparisons, only Census 2001 figures are provided. Comparisons with other surveys, which were carried out at another time, by another agency, and/or using different criteria, can be confusing and misleading. For example, state government data on villages with electricity cannot be compared with Census 2001 data on households on with electricity (the latter is more meaningful).
