The National Council for the Evaluation of Social Development Policy (Coneval) will make its 2016 national and state poverty measurements public on Wednesday, August 30. In a first for Coneval, it will publish the income and expense data for rural and urban houses from each state.
The National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI) noted that the 2016 National Census for House Earnings and Expenses (ENIGH) includes, among other upgrades, a broader sample which shall provide more precise information on the income and expenses of houses at a state level.
This year’s ENIGH will be part of a new series of national censuses, meaning comparisons with previous ones won’t be possible. Nevertheless, the 2016 ENIGH will kick-start a project that aims at better tools for measuring house-related data.
Results for the national and state poverty measurements will be available at www.coneval.org.mx. The site also includes spreadsheets, data bases and details on the methodology used by Coneval.
