Abstract

Rooted in Senian notions, this study operationalises the concept of freedom by way of examining individual’s attainment of various freedoms viz. freedom to be free from hunger, freedom to be free from morbidity and the freedom to be free from illiteracy; necessary for ensuring the enjoyment of a decent life. Besides revealing the incidence of inter- and intra-household differences in the attainment of various freedoms, the study also examines the endangering of various freedoms with respect to the level of economic insecurity suffered by the household. It diagnoses further, through the application of ‘Ordered Probit Regression’ approach, the relative vulnerability of females in worker households. The domain of the study belongs to the households of workers seeking livelihoods in Jalandhar’s sports good industry.
