The National Survey of Household Income and Expenditure (NSHIE), also titled “Living in India Survey”, is aimed at capturing the socioeconomic and demographic characteristics of Indian households, with a particular focus on income expenditure, savings and debt, and other aspects of household life in India. These include amenities and dwelling details, water usage, health, remote payment and detailed consumer behaviour data, with a section on the consumer mind space. The survey was conducted in two phases, starting with a listing survey. Over 514,000 households were canvassed during listing which was completed in July 2011. The main survey was completed in September 2012. A meeting of the NSHIE Technical Advisory Committee was held in March 2012 where the results of the listing survey were shared and approved.
