iGA conducts awareness sessions on Household Income, Expenditure Survey 2024

The Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA), in coordination with the General Coordination of Governorates and the kingdom’s four governorates, is conducting a series of weekly majlis visits nationwide as part of a campaign to raise awareness about the 2024 Household Income and Expenditure Survey.

The initiative aims to foster community partnerships and provide answers to citizens and residents’ inquiries.

The authority aims to communicate the importance of participating in the survey, addressing any enquiries they may have and encouraging the majlis guests to actively cooperate with the field survey team.

This involves providing comprehensive information about their income and spending patterns, which is crucial in helping the government make informed decisions. This data will aid in the development of plans and programmes across the economic, social, and environmental sectors, and support the achievement of key indicators of decision and policymakers.

The awareness majlis visits include a presentation on the Household Income & Expenditure survey detailing its primary goals and the iGA’s experience in conducting the first survey starting 1974-1975, as well as a summary of the Authority’s business lines, highlighting the eServices and mobile apps available to citizens and residents.

Involving about 35 field researchers, the national Household and Income Expenditure survey aims to gather data from a random sample of approximately 6,000 households across the kingdom’s governorates. They will be contacted by the survey call center number, 17878070 to schedule an appointment to fill out the survey forms, which are based on internationally recognised standards.

Selected based on a rigorous set of criteria, the researchers have also undergone several training courses to enhance their skills. All collected data will be treated with the highest standards of confidentiality, in line with personal data protection laws and principles.
