This survey, also known as ENAHO, was first implemented in 1995. From 1997-2002 data was collected on a quarterly basis. The 4th quarter of the survey was executed under the Program for the Improvement of Surveys and the Measurement of Living Conditions in Latin America and the Caribbean (MECOVI). Detailed household expenditure data was gathered to provide information on the living conditions and poverty status. Beginning in May 2003, the data collection became continuous and the sample of the 4th quarter of the 2002 survey was divided into 12 subsamples, each for a month of the year. From 1998 the survey included a panel component.

In the first quarter of 1998, data was collected in the urban areas of Lima and Callao provinces on household demographics, housing, employment, and crime. The crime module covered topics of robbery, physical aggression, kidnapping, and vandalism. The sample, based on the 1993 Census, was 2,600 households.
