Understanding the water metabolism of developing country cities is challenging because of insufficient knowledge of how social, infrastructural and hydrological dimensions are coupled. Using Bengaluru City in India, we demonstrate how fine-resolution data can inform model-based estimates of urban gr...(Read Full Abstract)

A permanent cordon sanitaire: intra-village spatial segregation and social distance in India

‘Social distance,’ and ‘social distancing’ have become the linguae francae of our world ravaged by COVID-19. Pandemic related social distancing prescriptions, however, do not operate in a vacuum. How do social distancing strategies for containing the pandemic intersect with extant social divisions? ...(Read Full Abstract)

Quantile regression models are typically used for modeling non-Gaussian outcomes, and such models allow quantile-specific inference. While there exists a vast literature on conditional quantile regression (where the model parameters are estimated precisely for one prefixed quantile level), relativel...(Read Full Abstract)

Addressing crisis in Indian agriculture through agricultural information delivery

Agricultural information delivery is the process of delivering research-based information to farmers. Currently, there is low access to agricultural information among Indian farmers, which has resulted in gaps in crop production practices.

Is the distortion of beliefs, possibly due to motivated beliefs, mistakes in updating or the feeling of having a lucky da...(Read Full Abstract)
