ANNEX

For the purposes of this Regulation, the following units, modes of data collection, reference period and data transmission arrangements shall apply.

1.   Units

The seven compulsory variables relating to the regime and management of household finances are asked at household level.

All the other variables included in this module are to be asked at personal level and have the current situation as reference period. They relate to two different types of units.

The variables related to the contribution to the common household budget, access to a bank account, the ability to decide about expenses, time use and expenditure shall be provided for each current household member or, if applicable, for all selected respondents aged 16 years old and over living in a household with at least two persons aged 16 years old and over.

The variables related to decision-making (both specific and general) and to the length of cohabitation of the partners shall be provided for each current household member or, if applicable, for all selected respondents aged 16 years old and over living with a partner.

2.   Modes of data collection

For variables asked at household level (section 1 in the list below), the mode of data collection is personal interview with the household respondent.

For variables asked at individual level (sections 2 and 3 in the list below), the mode of data collection is personal interview with all current household members aged 16 years old and over or, if applicable, with the household selected respondent.

Owing to the characteristics of the information to be collected, only personal interviews (proxy interviews as an exception for persons temporarily absent or incapacitated) are allowed.

3.   Reference period

All target variables relate to the current situation as reference period.

4.   Transmission of data to Eurostat

The target secondary variables on ‘intra-household sharing of resources’ will be sent to Eurostat either in the household data file (H) or in the personal data file (P) after the target primary variables.
