To improve the Central Statistical Organization of Myanmar’s capacity to produce and analyze quality household survey data.
Project results include:
a) Development of a survey instrument drawing upon good practices from the HIES, IHLCA, MPLCS, and other similar such surveys in other countries.
b) Implementation of a large-scale survey of household consumption and living conditions, which will also be used to calculate consumption weights for the consumer price index as well as household final consumption for the system of national accounts;
c) Training of local staff and management in various aspects of household survey techniques.
Currently several government survey in Myanmar cover the same topics. The HIES last conducted by CSO in 2012, the IHLCA last conducted by the Planning Department (PD) in 2009/10 and the MPLCS conducted under the supervision of the CSO and PD in 2015. These three surveys cover many similar topics and can effectively be combined to avoid duplication. The precise scope of this combined survey is still to be defined. As a next step, the CSO will organize a technical committee drawing its membership from relevant government stakeholders and development partners.
