Data on Changes in Rural India:
Rural Economic and Demographic Survey (REDS) survey. According to NCAER: "The ARIS/REDS datasets, collected in four rounds between 1971 and 2006, form a database on villages and households across India allowing analyses on the micro characteristics of households and their interactions at the village, district, state and national levels. As a panel dataset spanning three decades, the data from the surveys allow in-depth analysis of economic, social and demographic changes in rural India and provide an empirical view of the evolution of policy and its impact on households." Please do read the readme.txt for more information.
