Restructuring of the survey 2006–2008

In the years 2006–2008, the Survey on Living Conditions underwent major changes: data collection shifted from mainly face-to-face interviews to mainly telephone interviews, and the survey was integrated with the European survey Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (SILC). These changes led to breaks in the time series for some indicators, while other indicators were considered to remain comparable over time. Further information is available in this report:
