Coverage


Wave 1 : Data collected in 2005 with a sample size of 10,000 individuals. Wave 2: Data collected in 2008 with a sample size of 6,500 individuals. Wave 3: Data collected in 2011 with a sample size of 5,700 individuals.


2005


Random sample based on Census data and the Housing registry.


people aged 18-79


The questionnaire allows for a detail analysis of intergenerational relationships (including contacts, emotional support, material support...) and attitudes toward them (agreement with statements such as “When parents are in need, daughters should take more caring responsibility than sons”; “Children should have their parents to live with them when parents can no longer look after themselves”…). ERFI data also allow for a brief overview for some other topics, including health and performance, social systems and welfare, work and productivity, education and learning, housing, wellbeing. Last but not least, there are a few questions regarding public attitudes toward older age, with questions measuring the level of agreement with the following statements: care for older persons in need of care at their home is mainly a task for society/the family; Grandparents should look after their grandchildren if the parents of these grandchildren are unable to do so; When jobs are scarce, younger people should have more right to a job than older people.
