European Labor Force Survey (EU-LFS) and European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC): 

3rd European User Conference 

Mannheim, March 21-22, 2013

Organized by German Microdata Lab, GESIS, in cooperation with Eurostat

The 3rd European User Conference for EU-LFS and EU-SILC provides an international forum for the exchange of research based on EU-LFS or EU-SILC data. An important aim of the conference is to bring together people not only to encourage the discussion within the research community on both substantive and methodological issues, but also to offer researchers the opportunity to give feedback to Eurostat. The conference offers the unique possibility to discuss needs and wants of the research community with Eurostat. Researchers of all disciplines who are interested either in EU-LFS, EU-SILC or other European microdata are encouraged to participate.

Conference sessions will focus on effects of social policies, poverty and deprivation, quality of life, labour market issues, gender and work as well as on methodological topics. In the closing session more European microdata release for research purpose will be presented.
