National Sample Survey
The National Sample Survey Office (NSSO) was set up in 1950, with the idea of having a permanent survey organization to collect data on various facets of the economy. In order to assist in socio-economic planning and policy making, NSSO conducts nationwide sample surveys known as National Sample Survey (NSS). The NSS is a continuing survey in the sense that it is carried out in the form of successive “rounds”, each round usually of a year’s duration covering several topics of current interest. The Surveys are conducted through household interviews, using a random sample of households covering practically the entire geographical area of the country.
