The data set consists of 6000 households and is used in the examples of package
`laeken`

. Note that this is a synthetic data set based on original
EU-SILC survey data.

Only a few of the large number of variables in the original survey are included
in this example data set. The variable names are rather cryptic codes, but
these are the standardized names used by the statistical agencies. Furthermore,
the variables `hsize`

, `age`

, `eqSS`

and `eqIncome`

are not
included in the standardized format of EU-SILC data, but have been derived from
other variables for convenience. Moreover, some very sparse income components
were not included in the the generation of this synthetic data set. Thus the
equivalized household income is computed from the available income components.

This is a synthetic data set based on Austrian EU-SILC data from 2006. The original sample was provided by Statistics Austria.
