I am looking for Indian Women's Earnings/ wage data. I know NSSO has it,but I heard that DHS released earnings data for only one of the rounds. Can anyone help we with this?

With Regards,

Dear User,
Here is a response from Dr. Fred Arnold:
None of the NFHS surveys have information on the actual amount of earnings. NFHS-1, NFHS-2, and NFHS-3 ask respondents who are working whether or not they earn cash for their work (ever-married women age 13-49 in NFHS-1, women age 15-49 in NFHS-2, and women age 15-49 and men age 15-54 in NFHS-3). In addition, NFHS-2 asks women who earn cash about how much their earnings contribute to the total family earnings. NFHS-3 asks married women and men about their relative earnings. There are also some questions on who makes decisions about how the respondent's cash earnings are used. However, none of the NFHS surveys have information on the amount of earnings.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to post again. Thank you!
