The Continuous Household Survey is a continuous statistic which provides information on an annual basis about basic demographic characteristics of the population, households and housing.
The objectives of the Survey are, firstly, to obtain annual statistics with the basic variables of the population, households and housing, similar to the Population and Housing Censuses, but with more aggregated information. Secondly, to facilitate the preparation of household surveys which can be addressed to subsamples of the Continuous Household Survey.
The Continuous Household Survey is a continuous sampling statistic performed by the INE. Idescat disseminates the results of the two-year sample accumulated by Catalonia and its provinces, on the 1 January.
