This volume represents one part of a larger research project undertaken by the Central Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Tribhuvan University from 2011 to 2013 to design a Social Inclusion Atlas and Ethnographic Profiles (SIA-EP) for Nepal. The SIA-EP project has four interrelated components, including a country-wide Nepal Social Inclusion Suivery (NSIS) combining original surveying with the findings of other recent surveys and the 2011 Census, a Social Inclusion Atlas that map scaste/ethnicity data, and finally a series of Ethnographic Profiles describing the 42 highly-excluded communities of Nepal. The overall objective of the SIA-EP research was to promote a more informed understanding of Nepal’s social diversity by producing research based on the most current information of the country’s cultural and linguistic diversity and the status of social inclusion of different social groups. The combination of quantitative and qualitative information produced through this research is expected to contribute to policy design, research, and education.
