Continuous PNAD data collection suspended

In view of the context of public health emergency due to COVID-19 and complying with the guidelines of the Ministry of Health, the IBGE has decided to suspend the household collection (face-to-face interview) of the Continuous Household Sample Survey, the Continuous PNAD.

The IBGE goes on studying other ways of implementing the survey so that household visits are no longer part of the process.

Each and every option or possibility will be tested beforehand to be validated in order to guarantee the necessary quality and excellence of the IBGE’s technical services, pursuing to preserve the time series. 

Soon enough, the IBGE will put out the new schedule for the Population Census.
