The Living Conditions Survey (LCS) has been carried out since 2004. Based on harmonised criteria for all European Union countries, its main objective is to have a reference source on statistics comparing income distribution and social exclusion within Europe.

The carrying out of the LCS provides the European Commission with a first class statistical instrument for poverty and inequality studies, a follow up of social cohesion within the relevant territory, the study of population needs and the impact of social and economic policies on households and people, as well as the design of new policies.
