The Survey on Essential Characteristics of Population and Housing (ECEPOV-2021) complements the Population and Housing Census 2021 by providing information not available in the administrative registers in order to give continuity to the census series existing up to now, which allows, for some variables, a comparison to be made with the situation in the 2011 census.
