Description

This survey deals with the amount of material standard people consider as necessary, and to what extent the respondent lacks these necessities. The questionnaire was divided into following main topics: Household composition; Housing; Education and occupation; Working conditions and leisure; View on own material standard; Attitudes toward the welfare state, poverty and social assistance; and Health and social contacts. Besides data collected from the interview, this study contains data from administrative records concerning incomes and transfers, both for the respondent and spouse if any. All register data refer to income year 1991. A similar study was conducted in Great Britain 1985 by Johanna Mack and Stewart Lansley.
