Land Ownership, Asset Structure, and Income Distributon in Eastern Uttar Pradesh

Distributon in Eastern Uttar Pradesh THE study is based on primary data collected in sample villages in eastern UP on pattern of land ownership, asset structure and income distribution. Three villages were randomly selected, one from a relatively agriculturally developed district (Jaunpur), another from agriculturally depressed district (Gonda), and the third one from a district which stands in between the two (Azamgarh). All the households of the three villages formed the universe of the study. The heads of the households were canvassed through a structured questionnaire. The sample consisted of 390 households; the reference year was the agriculture year 1983-84, which was agriculturally a very good year. The results are presented below, which broadly indicate the transformation process that is taking place in this regard.
