Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) has carried out the Annual Household Survey (AHS) 2012/13 for the first time and it is expected to carry it out every year. It is a nation-wide household survey which data was collected from December 2012 to July 2013. The survey is primarily focused on two basic indicators, viz. household consumption aggregate and current labour force. For the household consumption, the survey has followed the structure of Nepal Living Standards Survey 2010/11 but it is much smaller in scope. Likewise, for the labour force related statistics, it is designed in line with the structure of Nepal Labour Force Survey 2008. Labour force data is collected in current basis only. The AHS covered 2,985 households in 199 PUSs. 100 of them are urban and 99 of them are rural PSUs
