Rwanda Household Survey 2019/2020

Every three years, the National Institute of Statistics of Rwanda (NISR) conducts an Integrated Household Living Conditions Survey (EICV). The sixth EICV was designed in the same way as the previous rounds of EICV cross-sectional surveys, to provide information on Rwandan household living conditions. Initially, the survey was supposed to cover 12 months, from October 2019 to October 2020. However, due to Covid-19 and the restrictions that were put in place, conducting EICV6 was not possible. Instead, NISR conducted the survey from October 2019 to March 2020 just before a national lockdown was implemented to contain the pandemic. In that context,only 40% of the originally-planned sample had been surveyed.
Therefore, this report presents results from the Household Survey that was conducted from October 2019 to March 2020. It presents stable indicators from different areas including demographic characteristics of Rwanda, migration, health, education, household dwellings, patterns of economic activity, environmental issues, and household access to credits and savings, all at the national level.
