It is pertinent to initiate our study of rural economic status by examining the compositional factors of Man-land ratio and Logistic regression of house ownership. The principal sources of economy of the rural sector are agro product. As per the capability of land, it continuously helps to develop its catchment rural area. The productive land directly provides opportunity through the traditional agriculture practice. Our study is emphasis on Man-land ratio distribution and Logistic regression analysis of two independent variables of four blocks of Purba Medinipur district. Consider two independent variables are number of household and house ownership. Actually, house ownership is one of the alternative setup that may stable due to stable income source.  Secondary data have collected authorised source, from Ministry of Rural development, published by Government of West Bengal in 2001 and 2011. The results of man-land ratio indicate that, the considered blocks having with standard level of status due to satisfied level of Man-land ratio value. The population density of the considered area is exhibit at moderate level.  Finally, a robust statistical technique like Logistic regression (Hosmer and Lemeshow Test.) was applied over the considered data set with specific level of section and after binary conversion. The result shows that, the expected house ownership and calculated house ownership makes a strong relation between them. B value (slope) is -3.515 and calculated test statistic value satisfied the significant level at 9th and 10th steps sections at 97 % (P =0.03) level of confidence.
