National Sample Survey 2002 (58th round) - Schedule 0.21 - Particulars of Slums
The first nation-wide survey on the 'economic condition of slum dwellers in urban cities' was conducted by the NSSO in its 31st round (July 1976 - June 1977). The survey was restricted to (i) all the class - I towns having 1971 census population one lakh or more and (ii) two class - II towns viz. Shillong and Pondicherry. The next survey on slum dwellers was carried out in 49th round (January - June 1993), which covered rural as well as urban areas. Since slum is an urban concept, it has been decided to cover only urban slums in the present survey.

Schedule 0.21 has been framed to collect information on (i) the present condition of the slums and (ii) change in condition of some facilities available in the slum. This schedule was canvassed in urban areas only.
Schedule 0.21 was submitted for each surveyed urban block having slum(s).
Information on each slum, notified or non-notified, found in the entire selected first stage units (FSU) was collected even if sub-block formation had been resorted to. In some cases, a large area may be a slum and the selected FSU is part of the slum. In such cases, information relates to the slum area falling under sample FSU only. However, if the slum was part of a notified slum, then part of it covered in the survey was also considered as a notified slum. An area having at least 20 households of a notified slum within an FSU was always considered as a slum. It may be noted that if a slum cut across more than one fsu, all the slum particulars would relate to the part of the slum which falled in the selected fsu.
Dates of Data Collection
Schedule 0.21 consists of the following six blocks.
Block 0: descriptive identification of sample slum
Block 1: identification of sample slum
Block 2: particulars of field operation
Block 3: particulars about slum
Block 4: change in the condition of the slum during the last 5 years
Block 5: remarks by investigator
Block 6: comments by supervisory officer(s)
Blocks 0 and 1 are meant to record the identification of the selected slum(s); blocks 2, 5 and 6 are for reporting particulars of field operations, remarks by the investigator and comments by the supervisory officer(s). In blocks 3 and 4, data were to be collected for each slum inside the selected fsu.
Some general features about the slum were collected in block 3. Information relating to the area where the slum is located, condition of the road / lane / constructed path within and surrounding the slum, and type of basic amenities like electricity, drinking water, sewerage, drainage, garbage disposal, etc. were collected in this block. In block 4, information on any improvement/change in the condition with respect to some amenities of the slum during the last 5 years were collected.
