Support from others

This indicator shows the share of people who state they could get moral, material or financial support from family members, friends or neighbours if they needed it.

From an integration perspective, an increase in the share of people who could get support from others indicates an improved situation.

Methodology

This indicator shows the share of people with family members, friends or neighbours on whom they can call for support. Support may be moral, material or financial. The question is whether the person could ask for help, even if they do not currently need it.
