    PSELL 3 (Panel Socio-Economique Liewen zu Lëtzebuerg) is a survey conducted amongst people and households residing in the Grand Duchy with the aim of gaining an understanding of their living conditions. The socioeconomic panel was first constituted in 2003 and is used to build and test social and economic indicators and assess the impact of economic and social policies on the population's living conditions, particularly in terms of income, work, social security, education, health, housing, transport, consumption and savings.
    MDYNRFC (Essandre CFB et INCCI)
    Variable keywords :
    • Nationality : 2
    This database was created through a collaboration with the National Institute for Cardiac Surgery and Interventional Cardiology (INCCI), as part of a MDYNRFC research project funded by Luxembourg’s National Research Fund (FNR) [Project FNR/C12/BM/3978355: Monitoring and Dynamics of Health Status through the Risk Factors for Cardiovascular Disease in Luxembourg]. It contains the medical, demographic, and socio-economic data for patients suffering from Cardiovascular Diseases. The patients were all initially admitted to the INCCI for coronary examinations in 2008/2009. The data was collected and recorded by the INCCI, in order to maintain its confidentiality and anonymity. The database includes data from 2008/2009, and the follow-up survey carried out in 2013/2014. The main aspects of patient life it covers are physical health, lifestyle, relationship with the doctor, social and professional status, and quality of life.
    Pratiques culturelles 2009 (Culture 2009)
    Cultural practices - 2009

    From September to December 2009, LISER (CEPS/INSTEAD when the survey was conducted) carried out the second large-scale cultural survey commissioned by the Luxembourg Ministry of Culture. The topics covered include sociocultural leisure pursuits, reading habits, use of cultural venues, use of media, etc. Analysis of the data provided a picture of cultural practices in 2009 that could be compared with the first survey, conducted in 1999, to see the changes that had occurred. A total of 2,000 people aged 15 or over, seen as representing Luxembourg society, were questioned (note that the panel grew, as it comprised only 1,600 people in 1999). Questions were asked about every aspect of their cultural practice: museums, cinema, theatre, literature, written and audiovisual press, live and recorded entertainment, and music, including their 'mode of consumption' (frequency, weekdays, weekends, or holidays, for example) and, lastly, about their overall satisfaction with what was available in Luxembourg in this respect.
    Enquête Mobilité résidentielle hors des frontières luxembourgeoises (EVALUX)
    Survey of residential mobility outside the Luxemburg borders (EVALUX)

    This was a survey conducted by post in spring 2008, by the LISER (formerly CEPS/INSTEAD) in partnership with the Europa Forum. The field of study comprised all employed members of the working population who were Luxembourg residents but had gone to live in a neighbouring country between 2001 and 2007, while continuing to work in the Grand Duchy. Four selection criteria were used, i.e. people who had: (i) moved from Luxembourg to a German, Belgian or French area of the Greater Region, (ii) moved between 2001 and 2007, (iii) been employed in the Grand Duchy both before and after the move, (iv) lived in the host country for at least six months. These criteria eventually resulted in the selection of a parent population of 7,715 people. Overall, the average age and therefore the average income were slightly lower than those of Luxembourg's resident working population, although this does not mean that the phenomenon can be described as residential relegation (Carpentier, 2010). To analyse the reference population and establish a contact base, both of which were essential in order to ensure that the survey was conducted properly, data was used from the files of Luxembourg's Social Security Authority (Inspection Générale de la Sécurité Sociale/IGSS). This longitudinal administrative data base contains data on everyone covered by Luxembourg's social security scheme, and is the only one to contain, with a certain level of temporal depth, both residents of Luxembourg and cross-border workers from Germany, Belgium and France. As the data base contains individual information only, questions about families and any changes developing in them (separation, setting up home together, births, etc.) when the move took place, were added to the questionnaire. Of the 7,715 people contacted, the response rate of 25% resulted in a final sample comprising 1,939 respondents, for whom, in addition to the usual sociodemographic data, there was data concerning their various addresses, as well as a certain number of places where everyday activities were carried out, both before and after moving away from Luxembourg. Specifically, ten types of activity were addressed: place of work, spouse's place of work, food shopping, doctor's appointments, sports activities, visits to friends, visits to members of the family, hairdressing appointments, restaurants and cinema trips. For each type of everyday activity, respondents were asked to choose the place where the said activity most often took place. In order to reduce the amount of time taken to complete the questionnaire, which, let us not forget, was self-administered, no questions were asked about, for example, the route taken, times, frequency, and transport links. Thus the aim was not to collect information on a typical day's travel, but to specify, based on their habitual activities, the places where these new « suburban cross-border workers » conducted their everyday lives (and the journeys that this involved).

    Enquête Femmes employées privées
    Female private employees (survey)
    Variable keywords :
    • Nationality : 1
    3000 women took part in a survey between December 1995 and January 1996. All of these 3000 women were private employees working in Luxembourg. The survey was part of a research programme launched and funded by the Chambre des Employés Privés, and carried out by LISER (formerly Ceps/Instead). The research collected a large quantity of data about female private employees, most of it brand new. The questionnaire used in the survey covered eight themes: 1. Members of the household 2. Basic education/training 3. Continued professional development 4. A description of their current professional circumstances 5. Employment history 6. Work/life balance 7. Constraints, solutions, and desires with regard to the balance between working and family life 8. Female cross-border worker characteristics The survey is within the context of recent growth in the female workforce in Luxembourg between 1987 and 1997, where 32,500 new women joined the workforce, and make up 48% of private employees. This growth is clearly visible in the statistics, but it was also apparent in the most recent trade union elections, with more women elected in the last election than ever before. Indeed, today eight women are members of the Chambre des Employés Privés’ plenary assembly. This helped raise awareness of the increasing importance of women in the workplace which lead to taking a closer look at the issue. It was then realised that before this survey there had been no research focusing specifically on working conditions for women in Luxembourg.
