Description: The statistics on living conditions describe the living conditions of the household population from different perspectives, such as risk of poverty or social exclusion, subjective well-being and livelihood, health and housing by population group in Finland. Data are collected yearly with the income and living conditions survey. These sample data are also used for the production of the income distribution statistics and Finland's data for Eurostat's EU-SILC survey. Some of the data published in the statistics are collected only at set intervals, but some yearly.
