Houses, Household Amenities and Living Standard in Nagaland
AbstractThe present study examines the status of availability of the type of houses and some important household amenities in Nagaland. The study also undertakes a comparative analysis of various issues with respect to the country as a whole, for a better understanding of the problems. The study shows that only 16.3% of total households in Nagaland have permanent houses, while almost one-third of total households has temporary houses, based on the Census 2001 data. Among the rural households in Nagaland, only 9.4% have permanent houses. However, as per the latest report of National Family Health Survey (2005-06), 20.6% of total households in the state have permanent houses. As far as, the availability of electricity, toilet and bathroom facilities is concerned, the state showed an impressive performance relative to the country, whereas the position of the state with regard to the availability of drinking water and LPG connection was not good relative to that of the country. Overall, in the case of rural households, the access to most of the basic amenities was extensively limited in comparison to the urban households.
