The other major flaw of these survey data is that they are based on a fixed sample of households that is changed only every five years. Since the sample is stratified by the size of landholdings, this procedure introduces a built-in bias towards stability in the distribution during each five-year period. This fact is not mentioned in published sources and onlv emerged during discussion with statisti- 36 Agrarian Systems and Rural Development clans responsible for the survey. This procedure implicitly assumes that there are no significant movements in the size distribution of holdings and hence begs the central question in the analysis of rural income distributions.
