Chumi Kalita, Sarbeswar Kalita
A correlative investigation of income level and some environmental hygienic parameters among the people inhabiting in Chhaygaon Revenue Circle, Kamrup district, Assam has been incorporated in this study. Economic status influences the environmental hygienic condition which then directly or indirectly influences health condition within the different communities living in the selected zones of the study area. An attempt has been made to establish relationship between income level and some environmental hygienic parameters such as types of house, types of toilet, sources of drinking water, types of fuel, waste disposal system, food hygiene and livestock hygiene. Results of the present study reveal the fact that the hygienic status is not very conducive to health in the study area and the environmental hygienic status of people with the higher income level is satisfactory in comparison to the people with lowest income level. However, if their standard of living can be improved there would be major benefits for their health, hygiene and welfare.
