The Permanent Household Survey, or EPH, is conducted annually. In 2008, the sample size was 6,000 households. Participants were interviewed on topics of household demographics, housing, education, health, employment and income, and agriculture. The departments of Boqueron and Alto Paraguay were excluded from the survey because they are sparsely populated.
