BANGALORE: Ahead of the 72nd round of the National Sample Survey, a training programme was held for officials in the Karnataka South region on Monday. The survery will cover subjects like domestic tourism expenditure, household expenditure on services and durable goods and household consumer expenditure.

At the inaugural session of the training, Ahmed Ayub, Deputy Director General, NSSO, Bangalore, said 596 villages/urban blocks in the state would be covered in the survey out of a total of 14,088 blocks at the national level.

K P Unnikrishnan, DDG (South Zone), said it was very important that they explain to the respondents the purpose of such surveys and where the data collected would be used.

“This will help the informant in giving correct information as most of it is confidential. The quality of data collected is also important to get reliable results. Central and state data is pooled to get reliable estimates at the district level to arrive at basic level figures,” he said.

In the three categories of data, domestic tourism expenditure is designed to collected detailed information on household expenditure on tourism along with information on characteristics of households and the nature of trips.

The data generated through a study of  household expenditure on services and durable goods, thus, will generate estimates of how much households spend on durable goods that are used for fixed capital formation and also contribution of specific services in national accounts.
