CoverRobustness of some EU-SILC based indicators at regional level. Edition 2010
This Working Paper addresses some statistical aspects related to the construction from EU-SILC data of indicators of poverty and social exclusion for sub-national regions. Conceptual and methodological issues in going from the national level – for which EU-SILC surveys are primarily designed– to the regional level are discussed. Then five complementary approaches aimed at making the best use of available survey data for regional estimation are identified, and statistical considerations involved in their application are discussed. In addition to direct estimates from the survey, these include the construction of alternative measures utilising the available data more intensively, data cumulation over time, use of survey data in conjunction with external sources using small area estimation methods, and constructing supplementary regional indicators directly from administrative and other large-scale sources. The paper concludes with a plea for the provision of more complete information in EU-SILC microdata on sample structure and implementation and for the identification of regions in sufficient detail – information which would greatly enhance the usefulness of the data for regional analysis.

CoverAn assessment of survey errors in EU-SILC. 2010 edition
This Working Paper provides a broad assessment of data accuracy and survey errors in EU-SILC, taking comparability of the results across the national surveys as a basic requirement. A typology of errors in survey data is proposed, distinguishing various categories of errors in measurement on the one hand, and errors arising in the process of estimation from the survey sample to the target population on the other. Important sources and types of errors – including conceptual, measurement, and unit and item non-response errors – are explained and illustrated in empirical terms using EU-SILC microdata. Examples are provided of the impact on comparability of national differences in data collection and data treatment procedures. Methodology of, and practical problems in, computing sampling errors and design effects for the complex statistics on income and living conditions which can be constructed from EU-SILC are explained and illustrated in detail. The paper concludes with recommendations on improving the potential for the assessment by researchers and other users of data quality in EU-SILC. [+]

CoverThe distributional impact of imputed rent in EU-SILC (Statistics on Income and Living Conditions). 2010 edition
The paper provides descriptive evidence on the distributional consequences of adding imputed rents to household disposable income. It first reviews the conceptual background, and then uses EU-SILC 2007 cross-sectional data to examine how imputed rent would change the cross-national view of income inequality, income poverty, and the link between monetary poverty and non-monetary deprivation.
