Applicability


The sample survey "Aspects of daily life" is a part of an integrated system of social surveys - The Multipurpose Surveys on Household - and it collects fundamental information on individual and household daily life. From 1993 to 2003, the survey was conducted annually, with data collected during the month of November. In 2004, the survey did not take place and, beginning in 2005, it was run every year in February. The survey provides information on the citizens' habits and the problems they face in every day life. In the questionnaires, the thematic areas are on different social aspects consenting to realise which is the quality of individual life, the degree of satisfaction of their conditions, their economic situation, the area in which they live, the functioning of all public utility services, all topics useful to study the quality of life. School, work, family and social life, spare time, political and social participation, health, lifestyle, access to services are all investigated from a point of view in which behaviour objectivity, motivations and opinions contribute to define the social information. The survey is included in The National Statistic Programme, which gathers the statistical investigations needed for the Country.
