Abstract:

Handloom sector is a leading sphere in the country after agriculture in providing direct and indirect employment to more than 43 lakh weavers and allied workers. The present study was taken up to find out the socio economic status of handloom weavers. Purposive random sampling method was used to select the 120durrie weavers from Warangal urban. Income, educational qualification, and profession were taken into consideration to compute socioeconomic status. Findings revealed that gender ratio in the occupation was3:1. Most of the young adult and middle aged women weavers were involved in weaving and the percentage was significantly higher than men weavers. There was a significant positive relationship between socio economic status and BMI, r (118) = 0.0512, p <0.1. There is a significant positive relationship between socio economic status and working hours, r (118) = 0.068, p < 0.1. It can be concluded that individuals who spend active time on weaving will earn more amount of remuneration, so automatically socioeconomic status of the individual will be enhanced.
