Besides providing links to published papers and information about work in progress, we present here the EU-SILC database and describe how to access the data.

Conference: Using EU-SILC for demographic analysis in Europe
Friday 29 June 2018 at l’INED, Salle Sauvy from 9 to 18 h
Scientific Day of Pôle Perspectives Internationales
The European Union Statistics of Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC) is a unique data source, due to its’ country coverage, the large set of socio-economic variables it provides and the possibility to merge household members. EU-SILC is not specifically designed to study demographic issues, but is becoming increasingly popular for demographic analysis. This conference aims to present different ways to use the EU-SILC to study fertility, marriage, and other aspects of demographic interest. The first part of the conference will be focused on the presentation of the dataset and on the quality of demographic measures. The second part will present demographic research based on EU-SILC.
