V1: Edited, anonymised dataset for public distribution
The aim of conducting the household income expenditure survey was to provide current data on household incomes and expenditure for a revision of the existing benchmarks for the Consumer Price Index.
The first survey conducted by the Central Statistics Office (CSO) on incomes of households was the Rural Income Distribution Survey (RIDS) in 1974-1975. RIDS focused on rural incomes, and the coverage of subsequent income surveys was extended to cover all regions of Botswana and both income and expenditure. Previous Household Income and Expenditure Surveys were conducted in 1985-1986 and 1993-1994.
