ANNEX

The target secondary variables and identifiers for the 2018 module on material deprivation, well-being and housing difficulties, part of the cross-sectional component of EU-SILC, shall be as follows:

1.   Units

The target variables relate to different types of units:

Information on well-being and housing difficulties is to be provided for each current private household's member, or, if applicable for all selected respondents aged 16 and over.

Information on material deprivation applies at household level and refers to the household as a whole.

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.

Given the type of information to be collected, only personal interviews (proxy interviews as an exception for persons temporarily absent or incapacitated) are allowed for material deprivation variables.

Proxy interviews are not allowed for variables concerning well-being and housing difficulties.

3.   Reference period

The target variables relate to different types of reference periods:

Current reference period for the material deprivation variables.

Current reference period for the well-being variables except for the five variables on emotional well-being and one variable on loneliness, which refer to the past four weeks.

Lifetime for the past experience of housing difficulties.

4.   Data transmission

The target secondary variables shall 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.
