Morocco dispose of a national statistical system rich in economic, social and environmental information. This system contains routine data produced by different departments and economic actors, household surveys and population censuses. Being conducted in irregular and cross-sectional way on households socio-economic aspects, they just provide a situation of the moment and do not allow dynamic analysis of social phenomena that require longitudinal data.

In this context, and in order to fulfill the needs of its missions to evaluate public policies on human development, the National Human Development Observatory (NHDO) has set a household panel system consisting of conducting surveys on a sample of households and household members who will be followed on each passage for a long period at fixed and regularly spaced occasions of two years. The households of this panel sample are chosen to represent all categories of households in Morocco. This survey, the first of its kind in Morocco, was launched in 2012. Since then, five waves had been completed: 2012, 2013, 2015 and in 2017 with an addition of a second panel sample.

The Household Panel survey covers the main aspects and dimensions of human development (demography, education, health, employment, housing and housing conditions, participation, exclusion, subjective poverty, expenditures and consumption, incomes, etc.) to observe the evolution with the same individuals in time.
