The urban Eritrean Household Income and Expenditure Survey (EHIES) was conducted in 5000 households in the 12 major urban areas of Eritrea during the period from July 1996 to October 1997, in co-operation between Statistics and Evaluation Office in Asmara, and Fafo Institute for Applied Social Science in Oslo. Based on the EHIES data, this report presents an overview of the economic situation for urban households in Eritrea for policy planners, for the international community, for researchers as well as for the public. Other outputs of the survey are the tabulation reports providing detailed information on the labour force, income and expenditure, demography and housing conditions, as well as the Consumer Price Index. All reports are available from the Statistics and Evaluation Office in Asmara.
