Falling into Poverty in Villages of Andhra Pradesh

Different reasons account for households escaping from poverty and those falling into poverty. Different policies and programmes will be required to deal with each of these two separate trends and both will be needed simultaneously in all villages. The most effective public policies to apply in any region are best identified through careful micro-level analyses. A methodology to assist with this kind of inquiry was developed initially for investigations in southern Rajasthan and was modified in northern Gujarat. This paper reports the results of investigations using the improved methodology in 36 villages of Andhra Pradesh.
