It is conducted over the course of a year with a monthly rotation of the households and communities surveyed. Instruments include a household questionnaire and a diary for household expenditures, consumption, and income.

For 2012, 432 households per month were surveyed. In total, 5,184 households were surveyed; 3,456 were from urban communities and 1,728 from rural communities. Questionnaire sections include migration, housing conditions, employment, education, agriculture, health, debts, social assistance, and energy consumption.
