Friday, August 24, 2018

From a statement issued by Banco Central de Honduras:

The President of the Central Bank of Honduras (BCH), Wilfredo Cerrato Rodríguez, and the Country Director for Central America of the World Bank, Seynabou Sakho, signed a Financial and Technical Cooperation Agreement this afternoon to support the planning, development and dissemination of the Survey National Household Income and Expenditure (ENIGH).  

The ENIGH, which will be lifted between 2019 and 2020, is a research instrument that generates an invaluable content of statistical information, key to the economic, social and household welfare analysis.  This survey will let us see in a very detailed way the patterns of expenses and income of households, but also their participation in the national economic activity. Also, with these results the weights of the consumption basket and base period of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) will be updated.
