The National Survey of Family and Vulnerability studied the ways in which Mexican families face and cope with vulnerable or high risk circumstances. Questionnaires investigate factors of security and vulnerability including socioeconomic characteristics, education, employment and income, family networks, and other aspects of family living conditions. The sample included 5,345 households nationally, from which 4,647 interviews were completed.

This study was part of the Mexican Family Diagnosis project, coordinated by the National Comprehensive Development of the Family (SNDIF).
