ln the attached table, an attempt is made to show the principal types of household survey and the main characteristics of each with respect to scope and method. The surveys are classified into three main groups - consumption, income and, expenditure surveys - surveys in the rural household sector - surveys dealing with demographic and Booial-characteristics. The list itself is not exhaustive and it is " appreciated that the details.relating to each type of enquiry by no mearas-;allow for all the variations in methods which may be adopted- It is however,, hoped that the table will show sufficiently clearly the principal differences which must be taken into account.
