About NSER Indicators
The NSER (National Socio-Economic Registry) is a composite dataset that determines which households are eligible for registration in the NSER program. Individuals are registered for the BISP (Benazir Income Support Program) based on 24 indicators used to determine their eligibility for the program. These indicators serve as criteria to assess whether an individual or household is eligible to receive financial assistance under the BISP program. The NSER data is therefore an essential tool used to identify and provide support to the most vulnerable households in Pakistan.
We will ask for complete information about the household members, including the number of individuals residing in the home and their educational background. Specifically, we will inquire about the number of educated individuals and those who have not received any formal education.
Those Asked questions are discussed below in detail;
1. Socio Economic Status
To determine your socio-economic status, the survey will inquire about your monthly income and household expenses. You will be asked to provide information about how much money you earn each month, as well as the total amount of expenses incurred by your household. Additionally, individual respondents will also be prompted to answer questions related to their finances.
2. School Dropout (Primary, Middle, and Secondary)
The survey will also ask questions about whether your children currently studying or have dropped out of school. If they have dropped out, for how long have they been out of school? It’s important to understand the reasons behind their decision to leave school and at which stage of education (i.e. primary, middle, or secondary) they left.
It’s worth noting that checking the attendance of school-aged children can be beneficial in obtaining educational scholarships. By providing this information, families may be eligible to receive financial assistance for their children’s education.
3. Out-of-School Children (5 -17) Years
The survey will also ask questions about children between the ages of five and 17 who are not attending school. This information will help them understand the reasons why they are not able to attend school, such as financial difficulties or other circumstances. And, they kindly request that parents or guardians assist in providing this information on behalf of their children. They must gather accurate and complete information to better address any issues related to education and ensure that every child has access to the resources they need to succeed.
4. Level of Education
During the application process, you will be asked about the education level of your children, including whether they are currently attending college or a government or private school. If your children attend a private institution, you will need to provide detailed information about the school they are enrolled in. This information is necessary to evaluate the educational background of the applicant and to ensure that their academic qualifications meet the program’s requirements.
5. Adult Literacy Level
In the survey, you will also be asked questions about the number of adults in the family and their level of education.
6. Employment profiling
They will collect information about your employment status regardless of whether you work in a government or semi-government organization. This will include details about the organization you work for, as well as information regarding your salary and whether your employment is temporary or permanent.
7. Disability profiling
They will also gather information about your medical condition, including any existing diseases being treated, as well as any untreated conditions and the reasons for not treating them. Can you please let us know which hospital you are receiving treatment from and what specific disease you are currently being treated for?
8. Still Birth or Infant Mortality
If you have lost a child, the organization may inquire about the cause of death as well as their date of birth and passing.
9. Disease profiling
We need to gather some information regarding your disability. Could you please share which diseases you are currently experiencing and which specific condition has caused your disability?
