Household Integrated Economic Survey (HIES) 2015-16

The Household Integrated Economic Survey - HIES was started in 1963 and has continued since with some breaks. In 1990 the questionnaire was revised in order to address the requirements of new system of National Accounts. The surveys were conducted during 1990, 1992-93, 1993-94 and 1996-97 using the revised questionnaire. The HIES was merged with PIHS in 1998-99, 2001-02 and questionnaire was further improved. It was also split into two modules in order to obtain better quality of information independently from male and female respondents by male and female enumerators respectively. Subsequently the survey was renamed in 2004 as Pakistan Social and Living Standards Measurement (PSLM) Survey in which two surveys were conducted on alternate years i.e PSLM(District Level) Survey and PSLM/ HIES (National/ Provincial level) Survey and the same module of the HIES remain intact. The last round of HIES was conducted in 2013-14.

This year Survey was conducted under Change of Base of National Accounts (CBNA), by integrating Family Budget Survey (FBS) which is used for computation of weights for Price Index and Household Integrated Economic Survey (HIES) which covers in detail the Income & Consumption of the household. Accordingly this report mainly focus on the HIES part and prepared on the same pattern as it was used for the previous rounds of HIES. The data will also be used for developing a series of socio-economic indicators e.g. literacy rates, primary enrolment rates, use and Access of Information and communication technology (ICT), proportion of households with access to water, and sanitation; household consumption expenditure and income from various sources
