Coverage


Data was collected in 2006. Survey carried out in collaboration with the Institute of the Elderly and the Social Services. The sample consisted of the Spanish population aged 65 and over. Out of the 3,537 interviews, 3,507 were effective/completed. There was an oversampling of the oldest old in rural municipalities and a multi-stage stratified sample (municipalities, census tracts, individuals) was used.


2006


Municipalities (according size), census tracts and individuals, randomly selected


No information is provided, but it is likely that the Municipal Register is the frame for the sample.


All of Spain (plus Andalusia where an additional sample was carried out)


Population aged 65 and over


The region of Andalusia is also representative.


Data on households (membership, cohabitation behaviours), dwellings (equipment and facilities), and individuals (daily personal and social activities, mobility and residential accessibility, family and social relations, social and family care relations, life satisfaction, feelings and beliefs, demographic information – age, sex, civil status, educational level, economic activity, retirement age) are collected in this survey. Tables composed by the essential socio-demographic features (age, sex, educational level, municipality size and ideological position).
