ABSTRACT:
The present study is an attempt to analyse the spatial patterns of rural beggars’ literacy, employment, variations in level of socio-economic status, and the relationship between their rate of literacy and employment (dependent variables) with selected variables of socio-economic development in rural areas of Aligarh district of Uttar Pradesh. The study is based on primary source of data, collected through the field survey in the Aligarh district carried out during 2009. Stratified Random Sampling has been used for the selection of villages. Six per cent villages (i.e. 70 villages) were selected out of the 1180 inhabited villages and for the selection of households, 25 per cent beggars’ households were randomly selected from each selected village of the district. Altogether, 496 beggars’ households were selected for the present study from the 70 villages of the district. The regional analysis of the study reveals that the eastern and south-eastern blocks of the district experienced the medium and high level of literacy rate among the rural beggar population. More or less similar pattern is also observed regarding the rural beggars’’ employment that eastern parts of the district recorded medium or high level of employment rate in comparison to western parts. However, any definite regular spatial pattern in terms of socio-economic development has not been observed in the district.
