The presentation will provide insights into the current recommendations for collecting data in household surveys to monitor and measure household well-being.  The increasing demands for information, such as the Sustainable Development Goals, and the increasing needs for analyses at more dis-aggregated levels, have led to larger data collection efforts in terms of questionnaires and sample sizes.  In addition, public interest in having access to information has intensified.  At the same time, however, participation in providing responses needed to produce the reports is declining.  The presentation will offer ideas on topics included in household surveys regarding how best to collect quality data and some ideas on methodologies that are being used to reduce the burden on respondents.
