Socio-Economic survey and analysis is a very important aspect of any developmental activity.
WOTR has developed a very useful and easy-to-use Socio-Economic Survey and Analysis Software. This software helps to prepare demographic details, household category-wise population report, education status, land holding and cropping pattern of the village, livestock details of the village, income and expenditure of families in the village.
The information regarding every family in the village can be retrieved in any manner required. Once village information is collected and stored in this software, the software helps to analyse the changes that take place in the entire village as well as in each individual family.
