The use of registers in the context of EU–SILC - Eurostat

From: http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/cache/ITY_OFFPUB/KS-TC-13-004/EN/KS-TC-13-004-EN.PDF

The European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC) instrument is the main data source on income, poverty, social exclusion and living conditions in Europe. It provides the data for the
calculation of the Europe 2020 social inclusion target and further EU flagship indicators in the social field. In the current financial and economic crisis, the pressure for timelier and more comprehensive data on poverty and social exclusion has become very acute. In view of the flexibility of the EU-SILC instrument, which allows countries to combine survey and administrative data source(s), and given the advantages of administrative data in terms of burden, cost and survey error reduction, a broader use of registers, and in particular register income data, for EU-SILC is envisaged among Member States.
