Details

The data set is used as population data in some of the examples in package simFrame. Note that it is included for illustrative purposes only. It consists of 25 000 households, hence it does not represent the true population sizes of Austria and its regions.

Only a few of the large number of variables in the original survey are included in this example data set. Some variable names are different from the standardized names used by the statistical agencies, as the latter are rather cryptic codes. Furthermore, the variables hsize, eqsize, eqIncome and age 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.

Source

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