Methodological note

L'Enquesta de condicions de vida (ECV) té com a objectiu principal produir informació sobre la distribució personal de la renda a través dels ingressos anuals nets de la població, la incidència i la composició de la pobresa.

Per tal de mesurar el grau de satisfacció de les llars respecte a la seva situació econòmica i els seus ingressos anuals nets, es recull la variable relativa al grau de dificultat per arribar a fi de mes amb els ingressos nets anuals de la llar. Aquesta variable presenta el grau de dificultat percebut per les persones per arribar a fi de mes, categoritzada de la manera següent:

  • Amb molta dificultat
  • Amb dificultat
  • Amb certa dificultat
  • Amb certa facilitat
  • Amb facilitat
  • Amb molta facilitat

The data for Catalonia comes from the Survey on Living Conditions. This is an annual statistical operation of INE, which Idescat uses to make a specific application of the results for Catalonia.

From 2016, as the result of an agreement signed with the INE to improve this statistic, Idescat carries out its own field work to extend the Survey with information from ore than 1,700 households; this means that the sample now includes more than 3,000 households and 7,300 individuals. The main objective of this extension is to improve the statistical validity of the results.
