National Survey on the Effects of COVID-19 on the Wellbeing of Mexican Households (ENCOVID-19- MAY 2021)


Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, the ENCOVID-19 provides information on the well-being of Mexican households in four main domains: labor, income, mental health, and food insecurity. It offers timely information to understand the social consequences of the pandemic and the lockdown measures. It is a project consisting of a series of cross-sectional telephone surveys collected in key moments of the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to the four main domains and a set of COVID19-related questions, the survey includes new key indicators every month to capture the impact of the pandemic on issues like education, social programs, and crime. This is the ninth dataset of the project, corresponding to May 2021, collected thirteen months after the lockdown began in Mexico. Data collection was performed from May 21 to Jun 17, 2021.


The project was approved by the Ethics Committee from Universidad Iberoamericana with the registry: CONBIOÉTICA-09—CEI-008-2016060. Funding for this porject provided by Universidad Iberoamericana and UNICEF. If international researchers require additional information, please contact Victor Perez ( or Pablo Gaitán-Rossi (
