SOCIO ECONOMIC AND CASTE CENSUS
The Socio Economic and Caste Census 2011 can be broadly divided into three phases :-
Pre EnumerationEnumeration Phase Post Enumeration
Pre Enumeration :
Notification of Intent: The State/UT Government should formally notify the intention
of the Government to conduct the Socio Economic and Caste Census by passing a
formal Government Order and publishing it in the Official Gazette. The Order should
contain the period of enumeration. A specimen of the Order is in Annexe1.
Notification of Questions: The questions that will be asked during the Socio
Economic and Caste Census (separate for rural and urban areas) should also be
published in the Official Gazette. This has to be notified both by the Central and State
Governments. Notification on both intent and questions can also be brought together.
A specimen of the notification is in Annexe 2.
Carving of Enumeration Blocks: The Enumeration Block (EB) is the basic building
Block for enumeration. 100-125 households with a population of 650-700 persons
would generally constitute an EB. The EBs carved out during the population
enumeration phase of Census 2011 would be used for the Socio Economic and Caste
Census also. The instructions regarding this are at Annex 3.
Charge Register: During Census 2011, every EB has been systematically noted
down in a Charge Register. This Register has details of the Towns and Villages, the
EBs carved out in each of these Towns and Villages. A copy of the Charge Register is
available with the Census Charge Officer. This will be made available for the Socio
Economic and Caste Census. The first and foremost task is to ensure that the Charge
Register is complete. In case of any discrepancy the Register will have to be updated.
The instructions regarding this are at Annex 3.
