ANNEX

For the purposes of this Regulation, the following units, modes of data collection, reference periods and data transmission apply:

1.   Units

The target variables relate to different types of units:

 

information on financial burden applies at household level and refers to the household as a whole;

 

information on health is to be provided for each current household member or, if applicable, for all selected respondents aged 16 and over;

 

information on general health and limitation in activities because due to health problems is to be provided for each child aged 0-15;

 

information on unmet need for dental or medical examination or treatment for children applies at household level and refers to all children aged 0-15 living in the household as a whole;

 

age refers to the age at the time of the interview.

2.   Modes of data collection

For variables applying at household level the mode of data collection is personal interview with the household respondent.

For variables applying at individual level, the mode of data collection is personal interview with all current household members aged 16 and over or, where applicable, with each selected respondent.

For children's variables, the mode of data collection is personal interview with the household respondent.

Given the type of information to be collected, only personal interviews (proxy interviews as an exception for anyone temporarily absent or incapacitated) are acceptable.

The body mass index (BMI) variable can be computed from height and weight collected during the interview or directly collected from the interviewee using a show card. Only the BMI value has to be transmitted to Eurostat.

3.   Reference period

The target variables relate to the different types of reference period:

 

current reference period for the BMI variable, the general health for children and the limitation in activities because of health problems for children;

 

a typical week for the variables related to physical activity;

 

a typical week in a given season for the frequency of eating fruit and vegetables;

 

last 12 months for all other variables.

4.   Data transmission

The target secondary variables should be sent to the Commission (Eurostat) in the household data file (H-file), in the personal register file (R-file) and in the personal data file (P-file) after the target primary variables.
