Countrywide Household Survey Launched. It will cover more than 15,000 households

At least 15 732 households will be covered by the Family Budget Survey (IOF), over the next 12 months, throughout the country, in a process officially launched yesterday in Manhiça district, Maputo province.

The survey aims to compare key indicators that assess the country’s economic and social growth, particularly in the current situation, characterised by the covid-19 pandemic.
Sharing information on the matter, the president of the National Statistics Institute (INE), Eliza Magaua, said that the IOF-2022 marks the beginning of data collection in previously selected households, through methods, scientifically designed for the purpose.

According to Magaua, the survey will also allow a reading, interpretation and comparison of the results to be obtained on the basis of others already carried out in the country, as well as internationally.

For this survey 1,496 enumeration areas were selected across the country, of which 756 in urban areas and the remaining 740 in rural areas.

Magaua said that INE, as part of its remit, has conducted censuses, surveys and other statistical options that produce various indicators to assist the government in designing public policies for development.

“The national statistical system has carried out data collection in households, businesses and other public and private institutions, with the aim of producing statistical information to generate periodic publications,” she said.

The INE president added that the main user of this information is the Government, within the framework of defining and readjusting policies that lead to the social and economic well-being of households, without leaving aside the different organisations operating in the country, researchers and other users.

“The IOF-2022 is the VIII of the cycle of statistical operations in this area,” he indicated, noting that the Household Budget Survey launched yesterday is the second that INE carries out under the Government’s Five-Year Plan and makes it possible to compare the behaviour of key economic and social growth indicators.
