The problem became severe after anti-CAA protests in the last few months,” said Sunita Bhaskar, Deputy Director-General of NSSO in the state.
The NSSO is conducting five major household surveys at present, such as the 78th round of socioeconomic survey on domestic tourism expenditure, periodic labour survey, urban frame survey, annual survey of unincorporated sector enterprises and survey on missing indicators of sustainable development goals.
Recently, the quarterly labour survey in Thirunavaya of Malappuram was stopped due to a ward member’s objection.
It would affect the quality of estimates based on the sample, said Saji George, Deputy Director-General of NSSO in Tamil Nadu.
So we need to create awareness to allay the concerns,” said Saji George, Deputy Director-General of NSSO in Tamil Nadu.
