As regards the size of the family, it was found that the family in this third group was slightly bigger than the first two groups. In the families in all the groups there were two earners. The average income of a family in the first group was about Rs. 9,000, of a family in the second it was about Rs. 2,800 and of a family in the third it was about Rs. 900 per year.

The families in the first group spent about 23 per cent of their total expenditure on the purchase of food items as against 38 per cent by the families in the second group and 45 per cent by the families  in the third group. The average expenditure on clothing shows a decline as we move from the first to the third group. This may be attributed to the seasonal and costly apparels that a family in the  first group would purchase as against the absolutely necessary purchases by the families in the third group. The families in the, second group were found to possess sufficient sets of dresses and even  a few spares to be worn on ceremonial occasions. In housing condition a marked difference was witnessed between the first group and the third group. The houses of the families in the first group were either spacious wadas or good apartments with more than three  rooms, well ventilated and well furnished. In contrast to this, the  families in the third group were staying in huts with hardly a bare space to live in comfortably. These huts were neither ventilated nor furnished. In case of the families in the second group it was noticed, that they were staying in well ventilated apartments, many a time two room tenements partially furnished.

In respect of education it was found that the children in the first and the second groups were generally imparted higher and better education. The children in the third group received education upto primary level and higher levels in a few cases only.
