Survey on Household Income and Wealth in 2002Supplements to the Statistical Bulletin - Methodological notes and statistical information

The interviews for the sample survey of Italian household income and wealth in 2002 were conducted between February and September 2003.

The sampling scheme is the same as that used in the preceding survey in 2000, but the sample is just a little larger: 8,011 households in 2002, compared with 8,001 in 2000.

The core sections of the questionnaire are basically unchanged. Two monographic topics have been added, concerning households’ relationships with banks and intergenerational transfers; they replace those on housework and care for family members and household consumer behaviour.
