The Annual Household Survey (AHS) is a nationally representative household survey carried out to update the information on the consumption pattern of the Nepali households collected in Nepal Living Standards Survey (NLSS). The data collection of AHS 2016/17 was conducted from September 2016 to July 2017.

Annual Household Survey, 2016/17 is the fifth survey of its kind, the first one was carried out in 2012/13 following the structure of NLSS 2010-11. Annual household surveys are conducted to provide estimates of some major socio-economic indicators on annual basis which would not be possible with other periodic survey such as Nepal Labour Force Survey (NLFS) and Nepal Living Standards Survey which are undertaken at longer intervals. The survey basically aims to provide estimates of consumption by sex, urban-rural area and by consumption quintiles/deciles. Although the major thrust of AHS is on consumption and employment situations, other sectors like education, housing and demographic characteristics are also included. However; this survey does not contain information on employment situation as in previous annual household surveys because NLFS was carried out concurrently this year.
