CoverImplications of the EU-SILC 'following rules' (and their implementation) for longitudinal analysis - 2013 edition
This Working Paper examines the following rules in the EU-SILC survey, that is, a set of rules defining which people will be followed and interviewed from year to year, and under what circumstances. More specifically the study look at these rules in terms both of the wording of the regulations, and on how these regulations are interpreted and implemented. Particular attention is paid to the percentages of the sample re-interviewed following household splits, and an assessment of the implications of these on the suitability of the EU-SILC for longitudinal analysis of the effects of household splits is made. Considerable variations are found in practice across the countries covered by the EU-SILC. Among households experiencing a split, large percentages of those remaining in the original sample household are followed, but only very low percentages of those moving to a split-off household. While this does not have a major impact on overall attrition rates, it does mean that the EU-SILC may not be suitable for longitudinal analysis of specific groups. Analysis of individuals leaving the family home following divorce or separation is particularly problematic, while analysis of young home-leavers is possible in a number of countries, though it should be undertaken with caution.

CoverIncome pooling and equal sharing within the household — What can we learn from the 2010 EU-SILC module? - 2013 edition
The 2010 EU-SILC thematic module on intra-household allocation of resources was aimed at investigating income organization, household members’ contribution to common expenses, as well as access to and control over money within households. This Working Paper is an exploration of the results of this module. The first part is centred on the assumptions of income pooling and equal sharing founding the measurement of equivalent income and in turn inter-individual inequality and individuals’ poverty risk. A tentative estimation suggests that these assumptions might be unfounded for about 30% of the households. The second part of the paper, focusing on not retired couples, examines the association between the extent of income pooling and couples’ characteristics. A statistical analysis shows that income pooling is more frequent among married couples, couples with dependent children, or in which only one partner is economically active and less frequent among higher educated or richer couples. Going along, the paper points at various methodological difficulties and limitations when dealing with “intra-household” issues. [+]

OCDELa Organización para la Cooperación y el Desarrollo Económico (OCDE) presentó hoy en Internet un nuevo índice para medir la calidad de vida de las personas y compararla por países, a partir de la ordenación personalizada de las prioridades de cada individuo."El índice para una vida mejor" se basa en once parámetros que la OCDE considera que reflejan el "bienestar", pero quiere que sea cada uno el que decida cuáles deben tener un peso relativo mayor o menor para calcular la nota de un país y cómo queda en relación con los demás. Esos parámetros son los ingresos, la vivienda, el empleo, las relaciones sociales, la educación, el medio ambiente, la salud, la satisfacción, la seguridad y la conciliación entre la vida laboral y la vida privada. Por el momento, el indicador cubre los 34 países de la OCDE, aunque está previsto ampliarlo a los grandes emergentes que son Brasil, China, India, Indonesia, Rusia y Sudáfrica. La OCDE propone a quien esté interesado en la web que ha creado que elabore su propio índice para tener una idea de qué parámetros priman los ciudadanos a la hora de evaluar su concepto de bienestar.

Condiciones de vivienda en Europa en 2009

CoverHousing conditions in Europe in 2009 - Issue number 4/2011
Statistics in focus . Population and social conditions 4/2011.
30 million people in the EU suffered both lack of space and poor housing conditions

Access to good quality and affordable accommodation is a fundamental need and a right. But meeting this need is still a significant challenge in a number of European Union countries. Poor housing conditions point to a risk of poverty and social exclusion. In 2009, 6.0 % of the EU population suffered from severe housing deprivation (see methodological notes). The most frequent problems were noise from the neighbourhood (22.2 %), overcrowding (17.8 %) and pollution, grime or other environmental problems (16.5 %). In addition, 12.2 % of people in the EU lived in households affected by high housing costs. [+]
