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

It is expected that around 2.7 million homes are included in the sample applied to the expanded questionnaire. This represents approximately 10% of households in the country. With this sample, we can generate nationally representative information for each state, each municipality, for households in the municipalities of less than 1.100 dwellings, and for housing in the 125 municipalities identified as the lowest Human Development Index of the country.

In parallel, the project of Population and Housing Census 2010 will collect data on the environment of the localities: For locations of 5 000 or less inhabitants, it will provide information on connectivity by road and public transport, infrastructure and services, presence of indigenous groups, and some economic and social aspects. For locations with more than 5 000 inhabitants, it will capture information on roads, signaling, street lighting, pedestrian and vehicular access, drainage, ramps for wheelchairs and presence of trees, among other urban characteristics.

Finally, the 2010 Population and Housing Census will also serve to update the national inventory of homes that mandates the Law of the National Statistical and Geographical Information: a list of properties which identifies and counts the country's housing.
