The IBGE releases today the values of the per capita household earnings relative to 2019, for Brazil and Federation Units, calculated based on the Continuous National Household Sample Survey (Continuous PNAD) and sent to the Brazilian Court of Audit - TCU. This release complies with Complementary Law no. 143/2013, which establishes the criteria used for the State and Federal District Revenue Sharing Fund - FPE. 

The household income is obtained by summing household earnings from work and other sources of all the residents in the survey's month of reference. The per capita household income is the ratio between the household income, in nominal terms, and the number of residents. Those earnings are calculated for each Federation Unit and for Brazil, taking into account the values expanded by the annual weight of the survey.

The Continuous PNAD is a household survey that gathers quarterly socioeconomic and demographic information from nearly 211 thousand households, along nearly 3.5 thousand municipalities.

The survey covers the whole country, except special areas as indigenous villages, barracks, military bases, lodgings, camping, ships, boats, penitentiaries, penal colonies, prisons, jails, asylums, orphanages, convents, hospitals and villages for rural settlement projects or enumeration areas located on indigenous lands. Brazilian embassies, consulates and representations abroad are also not covered by the survey.

The Continuous PNAD takes as target-population residents in permanent private households. It does not account for residents of improvised particular households, i. e., those living at buildings without facilities built exclusively for housing purposes or at inadequate places.
