Show Summary Details


This chapter contributes to the dynamic process of developing the common social indicators, in the context of Enlargement; a new EU data source (EUSILC) with a new income concept; a streamlined OMC on social protection and social inclusion; and new policy concerns. It emphasises the development of non-income-related indicators on deprivation, housing quality/adequacy, and homelessness. The chapter discusses the need to balance the development of indicators to cover several areas currently not adequately covered against the dilution that might ensue if there were to be a proliferation of indicators.

Keywords: social indicators; Enlargement; EUSILC; social protection; social inclusion; housing quality
