The Paraguay Permanent Household Survey 2011 intended to generate indicators of employment, unemployment, and income among other socioeconomic characteristics for the Paraguayan population for year 2011. The survey was targeted at residents living in particular households and excluded those residing temporarily in hotels, hospices, and similar accommodations. The questionnaire collected information on population characteristics, property conditions, international immigration, education, health, employment, and income, among other indicators. The survey produced national, urban, and rural estimates and included all departments in the country with the exception of Alto Paraguay and Boqueron. These two departments were excluded because their populations represented less than 2% of the national population. The International Standard of Classifications of Occupations (ISCO-88) was used to classify occupations reported by interviewees.
