Costs of Basic Services in Kerala, 2007, Education, Health, Childbirth and Finance (Loans)


  • S. Irudaya Rajan
  • Zachariah KC



The focus of this study is to analyze the pattern and costs of services in four areas, which critically affect most households in Kerala . The major concerns of this paper include answers to questions such as: How much did Kerala households spend for education of their children, for treatment of common and chronic diseases among their members, and for securing medical services related to pregnancy and childbirth? What is the extent of household indebtedness in Kerala? At what cost households secure loans for household and personal needs from banks and other financial institutions? [CDS WP 406].
