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