Data were collected through a questionnaire, which covered topics such as household characteristics, education, income, employment, unemployment, child labor, occupational safety and risks, own-use agricultural production, migration, and information and communication technology access.

The sample consisted 36,242 households, including one-person households. Institutional households such as hotels, hospitals, prisons, and barracks were excluded.
