Sixth Economic Census 2013

Intriguing Numbers

The provisional results of the Sixth Economic Census (2013) of establishments in the non-agricultural sector suggest that this is not a census count. A comparison with the National Sample Survey numbers shows that the number of workers in the latest census may be only a little over half the actual number. There also appear to be some serious omissions in individual states.

The authors wish to thank G C Manna and P C Mohanan for their insightful and valuable comments in their individual capacities on an earlier draft of this note. The authors similarly wish to thank J Dennis Rajakumar for his comments.
