Surveys

GWHLES 2018

The Guyana Women’s Health and Life Experiences survey is a collaborative project between the Government of Guyana, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). 

The impetus for this collaboration came from a decision of the CARICOM Council for Human and Social Development in 2014 to pilot a CARICOM model of national prevalence surveys on Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG). The Council further advised that the long-tested global model for population-based studies (pioneered by WHO) should be adapted for the Caribbean context. Hence, this survey forms part of the composite pilot for the national prevalence study on VAWG in the Caribbean. 

The survey was conducted by the Bureau of Statistics, the University of Guyana and the Global Women’s Institute of the George Washington University with direct technical support from the UN Women Multi-Country Office – Caribbean.

This survey was based on an analysis of the quantitative survey data and incorporating the qualitative study results, examines the nature and prevalence of violence against women and girls in Guyana (particularly intimate-partner violence).

HBS 2018

The Bureau of Statistics (BoS) is currently conducting a Household Budget and Living Condition Survey in all Ten (10) Administrative regions of Guyana. This is a comprehensive survey which combines the collection of household income and expenditure, with living condition of households.  

The survey commenced in November 2018, and is being done on a quarterly basis. The field work for the last quarter is expected to be completed in November 2019.

This survey has two main objectives:

  1. To collect information from the country’s households and families on their buying habits (expenditures), income and other characteristics;
  2. To revise the list of goods and services in the household’s consumption “basket”, and consequently the weighting patterns of the CPI (Consumer price index)
