Coverage


From 1996 to 2004, the EPCV scheme involved three annual surveys (N=8,800 households and about 11,000 individuals on each occasion): one dealing with the quality of habitat and environment (including availability and use of public transportation, services and equipments in the neighbourhood); one dealing with health, accommodation and the financial situation of households (including domestic appliances, comfort of housing, debts…); one dealing with participation in the voluntary sector and electoral activities (including working conditions, use of new technology and education/training at work, social contacts with colleagues/relatives, social isolation, leisure activities and community life). Since 2008, the SRCV annual survey includes many questions of the previous three EPCV surveys, with three blocks of questions (Health, social participation, occupation and community life; leisure and cultural activities; social mobility and contacts with relatives) + self-reported questionnaire on wellbeing (since 2010). The SRCV sample includes 12,000 households and 26,000 people aged 16+.

Applicability


Strengths: - The Insee is the most reliable French institute in the field of data collection and analyses; - This survey is both cross-sectional and longitudinal; - Linkage with several administrative files, which allows, for example, for a very good monitoring of financial resources; - It’s the French part of an international survey; - The sample size provides quite a large number of respondents aged 60 and above; - For many questions, a close follow-up is possible since 1996. Weaknesses: - The break from EPCV scheme to SRCV scheme; - Data dictionaries and datasets are not available in English.
