With a showdown against world champions Germany already in mind,“Had they not taken Mohata’s phone,outlier? One possible explanation for the wide discrepancy is that of a small sample size of Muslims (around 350 sampled households only) The NSS surveys are not designed to capture the consumption behaviour of a subset of population andin GujaratMuslims constitute less than 10 per cent of the population There are some tabulations that can help identify the outlier year One can compare the percentage of poor Muslims in Gujarat with the percentage of poor Muslims in India for the longish time period of 1983 to 2012 In five large sample NSS survey years since 1983 (there have been six)Gujarati Muslims have had a lower than average all-India povertyand lower by about 9 ppt Except in 2009-10when this fraction was higher in Gujarat by 2 ppt Secondas reported in my most recent article (and not mentioned by the PC sceptics) is the fact that almost every disadvantaged group in Gujarat reports near identical declines in the poverty rate between 1999-2000 and 2011-12 about 30 ppt Thusit appears that several statistical criteria favour rejecting the estimate provided by the 2009-10 NSS data In additionnote that the only reason there was a large sample survey in 2011-12 was because 2009-10 was considered untrustworthy by the government for two valid reasons it was both a drought year and a global financial crisis year One final calculation remains It is well recognised that the reduction of poverty from 50 to 30 ppt is a lot easier than an equivalent 20 ppt reduction from 30 to 10 ppt In other wordsfor assessment of poverty declinethe initial level of poverty matters One method of evaluating poverty reduction is to look at the percentage declines in the poverty ratio The table reports such percentage declines for all states in India with a Muslim population above 6 per cent and for the period 2004-05 to 2011-12 This later time-period is chosen to make comparisons with Bihar possible (calculations for 1999-2000 to 2011-12 yield the same qualitative results and rankings for Gujarat) For MuslimsGujarat had the third highest decline among 15 states in the country and for SC/STsthe eighth highest decline For the disadvantaged groups togetherGujarats rank is sixth (not shown
