The Survey on Income and Living Conditions of Households (EU-SILC) has been conducted in all countries of the European Union since 2003/2004. The statistical authority STATEC (Institut national de la statistique et des études économiques du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg) is responsible for conducting the study in Luxembourg.
The EU-SILC survey is aimed at private households in Luxembourg and their household members. It makes it possible to track the development of income and living conditions of households and individuals year by year and to compare these developments at European level.
The sample design in the EU-SILC provides for a rotation of cross-sectional and panel samples: The households selected for the study are in the SILC sample for four consecutive years. Each year, the sample is supplemented by households to be surveyed for the first time. The interviews are conducted using online questionnaires (CAWI) or personal interviews (CAPI). At the request of the households, interviews can also be conducted by telephone (CATI).
The infas Institute for Applied Social Science was commissioned by STATEC to conduct the face-to-face or telephone interviews in the survey year 2022.
