This survey, also known as ENAHO, was first implemented in 1995. From 1997-2002, data was collected on a quarterly basis. Household expenditure data was gathered to provide information on living conditions and poverty status. In May 2003, the data collection became continuous and the sample of the 4th quarter of 2002 was divided into 12 subsamples, each for a month of the year. 

In 2016, a sample of the national population was surveyed on topics of employment, income, education, expenditures, assets, health, social programs, household demographics, and housing. The survey included community, agriculture, and business questionnaires, as well as a perceptions of government and household economic status questionnaire.
