PNAD - National Household Sample Survey

About - 2021

This publication gathers information about the quality of living of the Brazilian population, with commentaries that highlight, for each dimension analyzed, some of the main characteristics observed in different population strata. Its indicators evidence the heterogeneous nature of society from the perspective of social inequalities and are subdivided into five chapters which also approach, as a complement, impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the regularly analyzed statistics.

The chapter Economic structure and labor market presents the correlation between the dynamics of the economy and the performance of labor market indicators, such as unemployment, informality and underutilization, which highlight structural inequalities observed in vulnerable population groups. The chapter Standard of living and income distribution deals with inequalities considering income distribution indicators and monetary poverty and presents impact evaluation exercises regarding the impacts of social programs on household income. The chapter on Education provides an overall view of supply and demand inequalities regarding distance learning in basic education and presents information on the technological inclusion of these students in the face of properly doing their activities during the pandemic, also taking into consideration sanitary conditions and the measures taken by schools to avoid contamination. The chapterHousing encompasses not only the physical structure of housing units, but also their location and insertion in the existing infrastructure, the access to services and their financial costs, among other issues. Finally, the chapter Health deals with some of the dimensions that indicate inequality of access to this service and explores funding in the sector considering public expenditure and household expenditure, the existing infrastructure, the necessity of support due to health-related conditions, and mortality.

The publication richly illustrated with tables, graphs and cartograms, is also available on the IBGE website on the Internet, and presents a full table plan for the five topics surveyed.

The main source of information for the construction of these indicators is the IBGE's Continuous National Household Sample Survey - Continuous PNAD. Other statistics from the Institute, besides records from external sources, help build a multiple picture of the Brazilian social reality, whose comparison with other countries is based on indicators made available by multilateral institutions.

The systematization of these indicators follows international recommendations and adds to the understanding of changes effected in the population's demographic, social and economic profile, thus making it possible to monitor social policies and to disseminate information of great relevance to the Brazilian society as a whole.

A Síntese de Indicadores Sociais é uma publicação anual que teve início em 1998. Sua origem no IBGE remonta ao relatório de Indicadores Sociais, publicado nesta instituição em 1979 e que teve, entre seus objetivos, avançar na proposição de novos indicadores de avaliação das condições de vida da população, rompendo, com isso, com a hegemonia de indicadores econômicos para estes fins, em especial o Produto Interno Bruto.

The National Household Sample Survey - PNAD, carried out annually, was finished in 2016, with the release of information for 2015. Planned to produce results for Brazil, Major Regions, Federation Units and nine Metropolitan Regions (Belém, Fortaleza, Recife, Salvador, Belo Horizonte, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Curitiba and Porto Alegre), it surveyed, on an ongoing basis, general characteristics of the population, education, labor, income and housing, and, according to the information needs for the country, having the household as its unit of survey. The PNAD was replaced, with updated methodology, with the Continuous National Household Sample Survey - Continuous PNAD, which provides a more comprehensive territorial coverage and provides quarterly short-term information on the workforce nationwide.

The PNAD started in the second quarter of 1967, and its results were presented quarterly until the first quarter of 1970. From 1971 on, the survey has become annual, being carried out in the last quarter, being interrupted in the years of Population Censuses. In 1974-1975, a special survey, named National Study on Household Expenditure - ENDEF, was conducted and, as it was being carried out, the basic PNAD survey was suspended. In 1994, for exceptional reasons, the survey was not conducted. Over time, PNAD underwent methodological updates, some restricted to the sampling plan, and others related to the comprehensiveness and the conceptualizations of the surveyed aspects, in line with international recommendations.

During the 49 years of its existence, PNAD has been an important instrument for the formulation, validation and evaluation of policies targeted to the socioeconomic development of the population and the improvement of the living conditions in the country.
