MATERIAL DEPRIVATION STATISTICS: EARLY RESULTS [30 March 2015]
Data extracted in March 2015. Most recent data: Further Eurostat information, Main tables and Database. Planned article update: May 2015.
This article is based on data sent to Eurostat by end of March 2015. Final EU-SILC cross sectional data for 2014 are already available for two Member States and 15 Member States and Iceland have provided provisional material deprivation and ‘economic strain’ data. In Eurostat’s online database, provisional indicators are flagged ‘p’ (provisional) to distinguish them from final data. The difference between provisional data and final data is explained below in the section on ‘Data sources and availability’. For the countries for which only provisional data is available, the analysis is merely indicative: in some cases, there may be discrepancies between provisional and final data. Although we refer to the severe material deprivation indicators for the 18 countries as early indicators, for Latvia and Hungary the values are already final.
