ANNEX

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

1.   Units

The target variables relate to different types of units:

The variable relating to financial stress applies at household level and refers to the household as a whole.

Information on basic needs, leisure and social activities, durables and mobility in the category ‘adult items’ is to be provided for each current household member, or, if applicable, for all selected respondents aged 16 and over.

All children’s items relate to all household members aged between 1 and 15 except the two variables on educational needs that concern only children attending school. The questions are to be answered by the household respondent for the whole group of children. If at least one child does not have the item in question, the whole group of children in the household is assumed not to have the item.

The age refers to the age at the end of the income reference period.

2.   Mode 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, if 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 persons temporarily absent or incapacitated) are allowed.

3.   Reference period

The reference period for all target variables is the current situation.

4.   Data transmission

The target secondary variables should be sent to the Commission (Eurostat) in the Household Data File (H-file) and in the Personal Data File (P-file) after the target primary variables.
