Abstract: Economic and social inequalities can be co-related, as economic inequalities, most of the time, leads to social inequalities. In this light, the present study analyses the social, demographic and economic characteristics of the sampled households across the different categories. The analysis is based upon the primary data. The analysis shows that among the sampled households, maximum number of households belongs to the SC category. Three-fourth of total households are from Sikh religion and one-fifth of households are from Hindu religion. Around three-fifth of households are nuclear type of families. In case of nuclear families, the maximum number of households is from non-agricultural labour category. Most of the households are headed by males and only a few households are headed by females. Slightly more than half of the sampled population is male. Sex ratio is found to be highest among artisan household category. Out of the total population more than three-fourth is in working age group. Almost three-fourth persons are literate and one-fourth are illiterate. The percentage of literacy has been worked out to be the highest in large farm households. Out of total family members of the respondent households, one-fifth are earners, more than one-fourth are earning dependents, and a half of them are dependents among the different categories. One-fifth households are Below Poverty Line families. A few households are there whose wards are getting scholarships and three-fourth of the households are not getting any kind of scholarships for their studying children. Only one-sixth households are getting old age/disability/widow pension.
