Household Market and Nonmarket Activities (HUS) – A Pilot Study


Economic analysis of household micro behavior, data collection for a longitudinal data base and development of statistical methods for collection and analysis of micro data are the three general purposes of the HUS-project. A pilot study was carried out in 1981/82. It was designed to compare various data collection methods, test questionnaires, give an idea of the likely response rate in a main study, help in developing coding and editing procedures and give the project staff training in the entire survey operation. The pilot study included a sample survey of 300 households which were interviewed in person and by telephone. This report gives an account of the design and the results of the pilot study.

This book explores the complex and ever-changing relationship between the European Union and its member states. The recent surge in tension in this relationship has been prompted by the actions of some member state governments as they question fundamental EU values and principles and refuse to implement common decisions seemingly on the basis of narrowly defined national interests.
