Statbel, the Belgian Statistics Office, is conducting a research into income and living conditions at a number of households in the City of Brussels. The research is held from March to September 2018. The households concerned are informed by letter that a pollster will come to their house.
The questions of the research are about housing, health, professional activity, income, living condtions, social relations,... A family that participates receives a compensation of 30 euros.
Purpose and confidentiality

The answers are handled strictly confidentially in accordance with statistical legislation, in particular with regard to the protection of privacy.
