David Durjoy Lal Soren
Abstract: This study aims to analyze the spatial distribution and variability of assets and household amenities in urban areas of North Bengal. The Assets Index (ASI) and Amenity Index (AMI) were constructed to assess ownership of different assets and evaluate the distribution of amenities. The concentration of assets evaluated through location quotient (LQ). The livelihood sustainability assessed by AMI index calculated that lighted the distribution of amenity and spatial variation with an investigation of regional inequality of basic amenities and coverage of household amenities on urban municipalities. It also focused on a causal relationship among assets (dependent), concentration of assets and on standard level of modern household amenities (independent). The study highlights regional inequality in basic amenities and examines the relationship between assets and amenities. The findings provide valuable insights for urban administrators and state governments in planning further development initiatives.
