Conduct a census in urban and rural areas for a Conditional Cash Transfer Programme

Local governments are responsible for managing CCT programmes like Bolsa Família. This includes verifying that current beneficiaries meet eligibility criteria. Periodically, federal accountability agencies draw a sample of municipalities where a household census is to be held with all families enrolled in the programme. Researchers visit urban households and remote rural settlements alike, gathering eligibility evidence to ensure that poverty-alleviation funds are invested efficiently and targeted to people that need it most.
