Regrouping of Economic Activities

The authors describe the manner in which the Central Statistical Organisation regrouped economic activities according to a new classification scheme which could be used to compile national accounts statistics with the new base year 1999-2000. This classification scheme was particularly important for the service sector of the economy. The justifiability of the classification scheme is discussed with reference to the relative standard error in estimating gross value added for each group of activities, at all-India and state levels, and for rural and urban areas.
