The survey "How we are today" started in 2021 in ten EU countries, including Austria. Every three months, changes in living conditions, income and well-being of private households in the European Union are recorded.
The fast availability, accuracy and comparability of the data will help to identify the accompanying and subsequent effects of the COVID-19-pandemic on the population in a timely manner. In each country, 1 500 to 5 700 people are surveyed.
Main topics in the questionnaire are household income, household financial expenditures and obligations, getting by on income, payment difficulties, and life satisfaction. This provides information on living conditions of different groups and on social crisis consequences. These results are an important basis for social policy in Austria and in the EU.
The survey "How we are today" is not offered in English.
