The “Third Network for the Analysis of EU-SILC (Net-SILC3) is a research network funded by the Statistical Office of the European Union (Eurostat) and coordinated by LISER. It builds on a solid foundation of previous EU networks, which were also coordinated by LISER (esp. Net-SILC1 and Net-SILC2).
The European Commission has stressed the need to bring social indicators on a par with macroeconomic indicators within the macroeconomic governance. A key part of the strategy is the availability of harmonised statistics at EU level covering the distributional aspects of household income, consumption and wealth.
The project stems from the need to provide timelier data on income, poverty, and social exclusion in order to feed the discussions in the context of the European Semester (including the early alert mechanism and the MIP).
