  SURVEY OF LIVING CONDITIONS AND HOUSEHOLD BUDGET SURVEY

 

The Statistical Office will this year conduct A Survey of Living Conditions/Household Budget Survey (SLC-HBS) within St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The SLC-HBS is part of a bigger study which is referred to as a Country Poverty Assessment (CPA).

The SLC-HBS is a combination of a survey of living conditions and survey of household's income and expenditures. Starting in February 2018, enumerators will visit approximately 2800 randomly selected households to conduct face-to-face interviews. This survey will collect information on spending habits, health, income, housing and other socioeconomic characteristics.

Results from the survey will be used to:

o   recommend and inform policies, strategies and action programs to improve the living conditions of the population

o   guide decisions regarding income support, labour market, housing programs, education and health care

o   inform local, regional and international interventions

o   determine the extent of poverty 

o   monitor price change of goods and services consumed by the population
