Telangana Social Development Report 2017, Hyderabad: Council for Social Development. 2017. Co-editor
The Telangana State Social Development Report 2017 provides data necessary for planning in social sectors and with reference to the specificities of marginalised social groups in Telangana State. The TSDR was formulated in the first instance with specific reference to social demography, land and agriculture, consumption expenditure, health, education, housing amenities, and employment-unemployment across social groups in Telangana State.
Drawing largely on Census, NSSO and NFHS data, the TSDR aims to provide state specific data that will track shifts in socio-economic status in the districts that now comprise Telangana State drawing on data from 2001 and 2011 Censuses, along with corresponding data from the other sources. Given the criticality of social and economic precarity in Telangana State, we hope to develop a template that will be fine tuned annually for direct relevance in social policy with full reports coming out once in two years.
