Sustaining Growth and Reducing Inflation- Challenges in 2011-12: NCAER-IIC Mid-Year Review of the Economy

The primary objective of this study is to assess the readership status and pattern from the perspective of “leisure book” or “non-text” reading of north-east India. In order to have a relative understanding of the situation in the north-east, the study further aims to compare the results for the north-east with national level findings. It also attempts to compare the results with similar findings from one rich and one backward state of the country. Another important objective of the study is to identify how different demographic and socioeconomic factors impact the likelihood of reading leisure books by literate youth and to measure the level of impact.
