From 1999-2002 Bolivia's National Institute of Statistics carried out a household survey as part of the Program for the Improvement of Surveys and the Measurement of Living Conditions in Latin America and the Caribbean (MECOVI). The 2005 survey is comparable to these earlier surveys on the topics of household demographics, migration, education, employment, income, expenditures, and housing; however, modules from prior years on health and social programs were not included in this year. The sample size was 4,260 households.
