Lok Surveys
Lok Foundation recently launched a five-year initiative to conduct the "Lok Surveys", a series of surveys to study changing social and political attitudes in India, in partnership with the Centre for the Advanced Study of India (CASI), University of Pennsylvania. The Surveys will be conducted on behalf of the Lok Foundation by the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy Pvt. Ltd (CMIE), across a panel of households, twice a year. The Lok Surveys span 65,000 urban and rural households across India. These surveys are intended to contribute and facilitate rigorous empirical research to deepen the understanding of the Indian social fabric and inform the public debate on a range of issues.
