From the above tables we can infer that:

1.

A greater proportion of households belonging to the OBC category are likely to be selected while a much lower proportion of SC households are likely to be selected. At a cut-off of 13 points about 15% of OBC households would be selected while only 8% of the SC households will be selected. At a cut-off level of 14 points, about 20% of OBC households would be selected while only about 12% of the SC households would be selected.

2.

As compared to the last BPL census, the proportion of OBC BPL families to total BPL families will go up. The proportion of OBC Households among the total BPL households was 77% in the 1997 census. In the 2002 census, it is likely to be 89% at a cut-off level of 13 points and 87% at a cut-off level of 14 points.
