Household Enterprises


Since my article “Reflections on Kalyan Sanyal’s Rethinking Capitalist Development” (EPW, 26 May 2018) was published, I have had access to estimates from an alternative set of data that may throw some additional light on the issue of “permanent exclusion” of self-employed workers in the informal sector in India.

These estimates are from the nationally representative India Human Development Survey (IHDS), which is one of the very few national surveys with panel data, pursuing the same household between 2004–05 and 2011–12. (I am grateful to Survi Kesar who made these estimates for me.)
