Fig. 2. Influences on perceived fairness. LEFT: the estimated probability of a fair rating given different relative sizes of the respondentís caste within a village (FRAC). Probability estimates show that non-Dalit fairness perceptions climb faster than Dalit perceptions with increasing demographic strength. Estimates are for individuals with no channel access, because those with access reliably rated the irrigation system as very fair. RIGHT: the effects of Dalit status and channel access on perceptions of fairness in irrigation, 95% confidence intervals. The term Dalit refers to the servant groups also termed Harijan, untouchable, or Scheduled Caste/Tribe.
