Recent Developments in HIES
There has been some developments in HIES during the 1990s, and it is important that readers should aware of some of these. The HIES has been conducted, with some breaks, since 1963. In 1990 HIES questionnaire was revised in order to address the requirements of a new system of national accounts. The four surveys of 1990-91, 1992-93, 1993-94 and 1996-97 were conducted using the revised questionnaire. In 1998-99 and 2001-02, the HIES data collection methods and questionnaire were changed to reflect the integration of the HIES with the Pakistan Integrated Household Survey (PIHS). The HIES 2004-05 was conducted as part of first round of PSLM Survey covering 14708 households taken as sub-sample of the 77,000 households of PSLM Survey. The current round of HIES has been carried out covering 15453 households.
