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 fourth quarter from 1998-2002, May to December in 2003, and throughout the year since 2004. The annual household sample sizes for the first panel section were: 3,851 in 1998, 3,855 in 1999, 1,991 in 2000, 3,632 in 2001, and 6,257 in 2002.
