Abstract:
During 1922, Chambers and Conway defined livelihood as the capabilities, assets and activities required for a means of living. It is defined as a set of economic activities either in the nature of self-employment and/or wage-employment and thereby generates adequate resources to meet the basic requirements of life for oneself as well as the members of the household.
This research paper intends to analyze the nature and extent of household health security in rural and urban areas of Imphal West District of Manipur State in India. Hence it is concluded that the income is found to be up to 3 lacs for almost all of the sample households. The rural sample households mostly visit Government hospitals for treatment because of their poor economic situation, hence maximum delivery of babies is mostly done in Government hospitals and almost all the households perceive their health security to be moderately secured and it was found that most of the sample households, accident or severe illness had not occurred during the past 5 years.
