Wealth ranking in a caste area of India

This paper is particularly interesting because of its context and because it describes the first time that wealth ranking has been used in this type of society. Income was ranked on the basis of data collected from 38 households in a rural Indian village in one cropping year. Assets included in the ranking were: livestock, poultry, land, and number of people in the household in paid employment.
