9 March 2020: One Hundred Homes: Visual survey of wealth and poverty in India

Abstract:
In 2018, a multi-disciplinary team from India and four other countries collected expenditure data, photographs, 360-degree media, and documentary footage of One Hundred Indian Homes, representing the entire range of income levels found across the country. The result is a website, which lets users visit and compare the One Hundred Homes -- and which upends our conventional wisdom on who's poor and who's not.

This presentation introduces the website but also raises issues about the collection of consumption data in India (and pretty much all poor countries). Problems old and new are discussed.
