Supplementary notes

Socio-economic classification in India is based on various parameters like educational qualifications of the chief wage owner in the household and the number of assets owned (out of a pre-specified list of 11 assets). Based on this it is further divided into twelve groups— A1, A2, A3, B1, B2, C1, C2, D1, D2, E1, E2 and E3. These are applicable to both urban and rural India.

Data for the BMI categories of obese and severely obese people was not available.
