Applicability


Strengths: This survey contributes to a wider project seeking to evaluate the wellbeing of the Austrian population. Data is stratified by age group and can be linked to the microcensus. Weaknesses: The required fee for accessing microdata may be prohibitive for some potential users. The voluntary nature of the survey may bias the sample and it does not include institutionalised population.
