Latvian Survey on Income and Living Conditions (SILC)

Full name of the series in original language
Eiropas savienības statistika par ienākumiem un dzīves apstākļiem
Abstract

The Survey on Income and Living Conditions (SILC) is an annual household survey covering a broad range of issues in relation to income and living conditions. It is the official source of data on household and individual income and also provides a number of key national poverty indicators, such as the at risk of poverty rate, the consistent poverty rate and rates of enforced deprivation. The survey is also carried out in other EU member states allowing comparable statistics to be compiled on a pan-European basis.

There is both a cross-sectional and a longitudinal element to the SILC survey. Households interviewed for the first time are considered to be cross sectional households (wave 1 households) and households who are being interviewed for the second (wave 2 households), third (wave 3 households) or fourth (wave 4 households) time are considered to be longitudinal households.
