Households in IHDS-I -- 41,554
Households in IHDS-II -- 42,152
IHDS-I households lost to recontact in IHDS-II - 6,911
IHDS-II households not included in IHDS-I -- 2,134

Reminder: Households from IHDS-I may have split into two or more households in IHDS-II. If the split households resided in the same village or urban block, all splits were interviewed.

Individuals interviewed in both rounds -- 150,995
Individuals interviewed only in IHDS-II -- 53,582
Individuals interviewed only in IHDS-I -- 64,753

Reminder: The term "individuals interviewed" is a euphemism. Much of the information about individuals is collected through interview with adult male and female respondents in the household.

Selection information for new households in IHDS-II: In urban blocks and rural areas of northeastern states where 5 or more IHDS households were lost to attrition, the interviewers were asked to notify NCAER monitors of this loss. Once the loss was verified via physical check, a replacement household was randomly selected in the same neighborhood to refresh the sample. This has led to 2134 new households being included in the IHDS-II sample.
