Description

The questions about social assistance included opinions on how much money per month adults and children in different age groups needs, the level of assistance that should be given for each additional child as compared to the level of assistance attributed to the first child, and level of assistance compared to the level of old-age pension. The respondents were asked if they believed that their own family was entitled to social assistance, and what they would do if there would not be enough money for food and rent. Background variables included information on marital status, age, existence of children in the family, type of neighbourhood, education, labour force status, socio-economic status, and monthly disposable income.
