In the present paper, an attempt has been made to understand the income and housing in relation to the caste among the slum dwellers. Two broad categories of the castes have been used to draw generalization i.e. Scheduled Castes and Non Scheduled Castes. It is found that caste is associated with income and both caste and income are associated with the type of house, size of house, covered area, number of rooms and attached facilities and utilities in the house. The data was collected from January to May 1982, from the slums of a medium sized city. Total 300 respondents were interviewed with the help of structured interview schedule.The analyses of data was done with the help of computer and the chi square test was applied to learn the association among caste, income and housing.
