If it does not, the social and political consequences could be serious and could lead to secessionist threats.

Second, unless the labor market conditions improve in their adult life as compared to those that prevailed in their childhood, they are likely to end up as poor as their parents were and, as such, unlikely to educate their own children.

The Indian National Sample Survey (NSS) does collect price data (although it is not transaction specific). Deaton and Tarozzi (2005) use more than 7 million pieces of price (more precisely, unit value) information from two rounds (1987–1988 and 1993–1994) of NSS expenditure surveys. In his analysis of the unit value data from the NSS for the state of Maharashtra in 1983, Deaton (1997) found that they matched independently collected market price data. Survey data confirm that households living in the same region and canvassed at the same time reported paying different prices for the same commodity even after allowance was made for possible differences in quality and other factors.
