The Population and Housing Census 2010 will take place May 31 to June 25 this year, by INEGI.

The main goal is to have information of all people and households in the country.

To know this information, two collection instruments will be used to be applied by direct interview: a core questionnaire of 29 questions and one extended, with 75 questions that include the ones in the basic questionnaire.

The information obtained from both instruments will serve to know the socio-demographic characteristics of the population and their homes. With the expanded questionnaire, aside from the inclusion of these topics, are expanded the subjects of health, disability, ethnicity, education, internal and international migration, economic characteristics and fertility and infant mortality. In addition, questions are added on equipment, acquisition and possession of housing.

The objectives of the seminar are to reflect, from a theoretical and methodological point of view on the limitations of conventional measures of poverty, as well as the effects of these measurements in public policy. At its second session, seminar attendees made a recount on the lessons learned and good practices of some programs to combat poverty and capacity expansion, in order to identify windows of opportunity to incorporate the gender perspective into policies and social programs in Latin America and the Caribbean.
