IBGE releases per capita household income for 2020

February 26, 2021 10h00 AM | Last Updated: March 02, 2021 06h08 PM

Today (Feb/26), the IBGE publishes the values of the per capita household income relative to 2020, for Brazil and Federation Units, based on the results of the Continuous National Household Sample Survey (Continuous PNAD) and sent to the Brazilian Court of Audit (TCU). The disclosure complies with Complementary Law 143/2013, which establishes new criteria for the Sharing Revenue Fund of States and Federal District (FPE).

Household income results from the earnings from labor in addition to other income sources earned by each resident 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.

Note: The income information used for the calculation was collected on the fifth home visit.

The Continuous PNAD is a quarterly household survey that gathers socioeconomic and demographic information of around 211,000 households, in more than 3,500 municipalities in the country. In March 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Continuous PNAD information started being collected through telephone interviews.

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.
