1950 to mid-1970s: Income poverty reduction shows no discernible trend. In 1951, 47% of India's rural population was below the poverty line. The proportion went up to 64% in 1954-55; it came down to 45% in 1960-61 but in 1977-78, it went up again to 51%.
Mid-1970s to 1990: Income poverty declined significantly between the mid-1970s and the end of the 1980s. The decline was more pronounced between 1977-78 and 1986-87, with rural income poverty declining from 51% to 39%. It went down further to 34% by 1989-90. Urban income poverty went down from 41% in 1977-78 to 34% in 1986-87, and further to 33% in 1989-90.
After 1991: This post-economic reform period evidenced both setbacks and progress. Rural income poverty increased from 34% in 1989-90 to 43% in 1992 and then fell to 37% in 1993-94. Urban income poverty went up from 33.4% in 1989-90 to 33.7% in 1992 and declined to 32% in 1993-94 Also, NSS data for 1994-95 to 1998 show little or no poverty reduction, so that the evidence till 1999-2000 was that poverty, particularly rural poverty, had increased post-reform. However, the official estimate of poverty for 1999-2000 was 26.1%, a dramatic decline that led to much debate and analysis. This was because for this year the NSS had adopted a new survey methodology that led to both higher estimated mean consumption and also an estimated distribution that was more equal than in past NSS surveys. The latest NSS survey for 2004-05 is fully comparable to the surveys before 1999-2000 and shows poverty at 28.3% in rural areas, 25.7% in urban areas and 27.5% for the country as a whole, using Uniform Recall Period Consumption. The corresponding figures using the Mixed Recall Period Consumption method was 21.8%, 21.7% and 21.8% respectively. Thus, poverty has declined after 1998, although it is still being debated whether there was any significant poverty reduction between 1989-90…...

National Income and Macroeconomics

...UNIT I NATIONAL INCOME AND MACROECONOMICS 1 National Income National Income is defined as the sum total of all the goods and services produced in a country, in a particular period of time. Normally this period consists of one year duration, as a year is neither too short nor long a period. National product is usually used synonymous with National income. Alfred Marshall in his ‘Principle of Economics’ (1949) defines National income as “The labour and capital of a country, acting on its natural resources, produce annually a certain net aggregate of commodities, material and immaterial, including services of all kinds…..and net income due on account of foreign investments must be added in. This is the true net National income or Revenue of the country or the national dividend.” Irving Fisher defined national income as “The national dividend or income consists solely of services as received by the ultimate consumers, whether from their material or from human environments. Thus, a piano or an overcoat made for me this year is not a part of this year’s income, but an addition to capital. Only the services rendered to me during this year by these things are income.” Central Statistical Organization defines National income as “National Income is the sum of factor income earned by the normal residents of a country in the form of wages, rent, interest and profit in an accounting year.” Concepts of National Income There are different concepts of National Income, namely;......

The UN has developed the Human Development Index, a compound indicator of the above statistics, to gauge the level of human development for countries where data is available. Developing countries are, in general, countries that have not achieved a significant degree of industrialization relative to their populations, and have, in most cases, a medium to low standard of living. There is a strong correlation between low income and high population growth. The terms utilized when discussing developing countries refer to the intent and to the constructs of those who utilize these terms. Other terms sometimes used are less developed countries, least economically developed countries, "underdeveloped nations" or Third World nations, and "non-industrialized nations".

While the agricultural sector contributed more than 50% to the GDP, the consumer goods industry were completely neglected. As a result the growth rate kept fluctuating during this period. 1966-80: During this period, India’s economic growth can be characterized by one word – “volatile”. The 1971 war with Pakistan, successive changes In Government in the late 1970’s and the huge drought in 1979 which affected nearly 200 million people in the agricultural sector, had a major impact on the national income. 1981-1991: In the 1980s, the businesses were able to drive efficiency and react to supply and demand incentives, the economy took off. The plan laid stress on improving the productivity level of industries by upgrading of technology. So, the national income always increased as depicted by the graph shown.

A Study on the Growth of Emerging Economies and Their National Income Distribution

...offers an analysis of these points and studies them as a strategy for sustainability and continuous growth. Key words: BRICS countries growth; National income distribution; Equity in the development agenda. 1. Introduction BRICS Countries are leading the growth of the economy in the world, and have done so for over 10 years. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) projected that from 2013 to 2017 it will maintain its growth at least 26% above World Growth GDP. Note: GDP, will be the measure utilized in this paper when referring to growing economies. This information comes from the IMF data base and calculations made by the author. Income distribution refers to how a nation’s total GDP is distributed among its population (Sullivan and Sheffrin, 2003). This distribution is typically unequal, and becomes an issue which has been avoided for many years. In 2004, this trend changed when the International Labor Organization (ILO) published: "A Fair Globalization.” After this occurred, other major development-related institutions followed suit and began posting about inequality as well. Currently, there is a unanimous concern in international institutions about that issue and it has become clear that the issue of inequality must be incorporated in discussions about development. This paper analyzes: (i) Distribution of income or consumption per country, (ii) Gini Index and, (iii) Understanding the background of these countries, this research also incorporates......

Indeed, it is hard to pick up a newspaper without seeing some newly reported statistic about the economy. The statistic might measure the total income of everyone in the economy (GDP), the rate at which average prices are rising (inflation), the percentage of the labor force that is out of work (unemployment), total spending at stores (retailsales), or the imbalance of trade between the united states and the rest of the world (the trade deficit).

To What Extent Do National Income Statistics (Gdp) Provide a Good Basis for Comparison Between Countries?

...Economics Essay – To what extent do national income statistics (GDP) provide a good basis for comparison between countries? In the world of Economics, GDP per capita is used to compare the way that countries are coping with different economic climates; such as recession, boom etc. This essay will be assessing whether GDP is the best statistic to use for comparing different countries’ economies. GDP is the most commonly used method by world famous economists to assess how successful an economy is. GDP stands for Gross Domestic Product and is the market value of the official goods that have been transferred in and out in a country over a certain period of time. GDP is a good method for comparing the national incomes of countries because it can be very accurate. This is especially the case when the GDP for a division is divided between the population of a country. This is a statistic called GDP per capita and is a lot more accurate at showing how wealthy a country is because it divides the value of the goods transferred in a country between the whole population. This is clearly a better way of measuring how wealthy a country is because it explains how rich each person is in a country. This is a better way of comparison between countries because it shows how rich the country is in terms of value per person instead of making assumptions. This makes a huge difference because in normal GDP, China is the richest country in the world because it is worth the most as a country;......

Describe the Terminology of Macroeconomics Including Gdp, Gnp, National Income Business Cycles, Monetary Policy, Fiscal Policy, Inflation and Unemployment

...Name Institution Instructor Title   Describe the terminology of macroeconomics including GDP, GNP, national income business cycles, monetary policy, fiscal policy, inflation and unemployment Macroeconomics is a broad sub-field of economics that establishes the behavior, outlook and structure, collective and established decision making system of an economy at large and usually involves national economies, regional and global economies with little or no involvement of the individual markets. Gross National Product is a determining tool in macroeconomics that measures a nation’s economy and status through international investments and residents working over-seas. GNP excludes any product values produced by foreign investors within the country. GNP is a great indicator in macroeconomics when assessing economic progress in comparison with Gross Domestic Income. (Clark & Montjoy, 2001) Macroeconomics uses GDP to determine the value of all market products and services produced within a given boundary usually a nation in a period of one year. At every stage of production, the value of all goods is added and the economic growth established based on the previously assessed standards. Macroeconomists explain that unemployment tends to reduce with a rising GDP rate since the output is increased and thus need for more skilled and unskilled labor force. Inflation gives an explanation on the rate at which product prices increase over time. Macroeconomists study this......

Origins of National Income Accounting

...información a través de las importaciones y exportaciones. Otros indicadores importantes a nivel laboral además del nivel del desempleo, los encontramos en las estadísticas de las nóminas, ya que de la cantidad de estos ingresos se generan gastos por algunos productos, mismo que deben ser medidos de acuerdo las preferencias de los consumidores. Otro aspecto notable a resaltar es que la creación de este tipo de sistemas de control de las variables macroeconómicas no ha sido en la historia un resultado de la libre actividad de las fuerzas del mercado, sino producto de la intervención estatal propia de la economía mixta, siguiendo el ejemplo en este tema de las ahora casi extintas economías planificadas. La lectura del caso “The Origins of National Income Accounting” explica como en la época de la "Gran Depresión" de la economía mundial, al tratar de entender el estado de la economía de los Estados Unidos, los funcionarios públicos e interesados en el tema se encontraron con múltiples problemas, como el desconocimiento de las grandes variables macroeconómicas como los Niveles de producción, Ingreso, Consumo, Ahorro, Inversión, Crédito, entre otras. Este desconocimiento era originado porque no había en éste país ni en general en los Países Occidentales, un conocimiento de los gobiernos sobre los indicadores clave del devenir económico, a pesar de que desde el siglo 17, ya había habido intentos de consolidar información económica global. Siguiendo la máxima de que lo que no......

Discuss the Economic Relationship Between Consumption, National Income and Investment

...Discuss the economic relationships between consumption, national income and investment. Aggregate demand is heavily determined by the state of consumption, the spending on consumer goods and service over a period of time; Furthermore income and investment have a very volatile connection with consumption. National income is the total level of output of a country and is calculated by C+I+G+(X-M)= AD however there is three ways in which we can be interpreted. Firstly The expenditure method is the worth of household spending of goods and services, secondly national output is the amount flowing between goods and services from firms to households; finally there is the national income which is the value of income to households from land, capital and labour from firms. The three components must be identical not just equal. Investment is the expenditure on capital goods, that then are used to provide other goods or services. Investment can be effected by the accelerator effect as an increase in nation income results in an increase in investment, however for this theory to take place its not the rate of interest that determines the level of investment but real spending within the economy. Consumption influences national income as it has many determinate’s, however it is important to determine that income is a flow ands wealth is a stock. National income is strongly controlled by confidence as the higher the confidence people feel, the more they will spend. Confidence can be......

Concepts of National Income

...CONCEPTS OF NATIONAL INCOME The total net value of all goods and services produced within a nation over a specified period of time, representing the sum of wages, profits, rents, interest, and pension payments to residents of the nation. The important concepts of national income are: 1. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) 2. Gross National Product (GNP) 3. Net National Product (NNP) at Market Prices 4. Net National Product (NNP) at Factor Cost or National Income 5. Personal Income 6. Disposable Income Let us explain these concepts of National Income in detail. 1. Gross Domestic Product (GDP): Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is the total market value of all final goods and services currently produced within the domestic territory of a country in a year. Four things must be noted regarding this definition. First, it measures the market value of annual output of goods and services currently produced. This implies that GDP is a monetary measure. Secondly, for calculating GDP accurately, all goods and services produced in any given year must be counted only once so as to avoid double counting. So, GDP should include the value of only final goods and services and ignores the transactions involving intermediate goods. Thirdly, GDP includes only currently produced goods and services in a year. Market transactions involving goods produced in the previous periods such as old houses, old cars, factories built earlier are not included in GDP of the current year. Lastly, GDP......

La contabilidad nacional, es el conjunto de información estadística que permite a los responsables de la política económica determinar si la economía de un país se contrae o se expande, y si existe amenaza de inflación o recesión severa. La contabilidad nacional contiene información estratégica sobre la macroeconomía nacional. La medición del Producto Interno Bruto (PIB), es parte de la contabilidad nacional, el PIB es el nombre que le damos al valor total de mercado de bienes y servicios finales que produce un país en un año, es igual a la producción total de bienes de consumo y de inversión, las compras del Estado y las exportaciones netas a otros países. El fin más importante del PIB es medir el comportamiento global de una economía. En la actualidad los economistas del Estado se basan en una amplia variedad de fuentes, incluidas las encuestas, las declaraciones del impuesto sobre la renta, reportes de ventas al por menor y los datos sobre el empleo, de aquí que los economistas toman los datos para formar la contabilidad nacional, la cual también se apoya en la contabilidad de las empresas y la estadística para mostrar la información generada y de esta manera planificar ahorros, inversiones y consumos de un país y tomar decisiones sobre el rumbo de la nación. 2....
