Prices and Poverty in India, 1987-2000

Using consumption data from the 43rd, 50th and 55th rounds of the National Sample Survey, this paper computes for each of the large Indian states, by urban and rural sectors separately, a range of consumer prices indexes for 1999-2000 relative to 1993-94 and for 1993-94 relative to 1987-88. The main focus of the paper is to explain the methodology underlying the new price indexes and to incorporate them into poverty lines.
