Can we trust data generated by Govt??

Last week  I  came across  census data web site and was looking  across data from Bihar.  Something really attracted my eye.  According to the posted data,  around 80% of urban population in Bihar lives in their own house.  Similarly, 40% of urban population uses Kerosene for lighting in stead of electricity.  Here is the link http://www.censusindia.gov.in/Census_Data_2001/States_at_glance/State_Links/10_bih.pdf .  I wonder whether such amazing data was really cross checked by anyone.
