Kiribati undertook their third Household Income and Expenditure Survey (HIES) between 2019 and 2020. The main objectives of the survey were to assess the socioeconomic situation of i-Kiribati people and households and to provide data for use in forming economic and social policy.

The 2019-20 Kiribati Household Income and Expenditure Survey Report presents information on household income and expenditure. The report presents information by various population groups, including geographic, gender, disability status and wealth, which supports targeted policy and planning. Given the report’s focus is on income and expenditure, most of the analysis is related to livelihood and consumption activities.

Other products will result from the Kiribati 2019/20 HIES, such as the report on food consumption and the food security profile. Coming soon are reports on poverty and labour and the data are available to rebase the Consumer Price Index and household component of Gross Domestic Product.
