ANNEX

For the purposes of this Regulation, the following unit, mode of data collection, reference period and definitions shall apply:

1.   Unit

Information shall be provided for all current household members or, if applicable, for all selected respondents aged over 24 years and less than 60 years.

2.   Mode of data collection

Given the type of information to be collected, only personal interviews or information extracted from registers are allowed. Proxy interviews are allowed as an exception for persons temporarily absent or incapacitated.

3.   Reference period

The reference period shall be when the interviewee was around 14 years old.

4.   Definitions

(1)   Father: the person the interviewee considered to be his/her father when he/she was around 14 years old. In general the father will be the biological father, but if the interviewee considers someone else to be the father during the reference period, the answers should refer to him, even if the biological father is alive and known.

(2)   Mother: the person the interviewee considered to be his/her mother when he/she was around 14 years old. In general the mother will be the biological mother, but if the interviewee considers someone else to be the mother during the reference period, the answers should refer to her, even if the biological mother is alive and known.

(3)   Household: refers to the household in which the respondent was living when he/she was around 14 years old. If the parents of the respondent were divorced and shared custody (50 % of the time for each parent), the respondent should select his/her household either on an objective basis, taking into account his/her main address when he/she was around 14 years old (i.e. the one in the population register and/or in his/her identity card/passport), or on a subjective basis according to where he/she felt more at home when he/she was around 14 years old. For detailed guidelines please refer to the ‘Description of target variables: Cross-sectional and Longitudinal’ (EU-SILC 065 – 2010 operation) — Units.
