The 2021 survey, done by PRADAN, an NGO working with and for tribal communities for the past four decades, and the Ford Foundation covered 5,000 households focussed on ‘tribal-dominated’ administrative blocks under the Intensive Tribal Development Program (ITDP). The basic sampling unit was a village with 20 households.
