Social trajectory patterns (SHIVALV)

The statistics on social trajectory patterns (SHIVALV) provide information on recipients of three social benefits: unemployment insurance (ALV), social assistance and invalidity insurance (IV). Annual basic indicators detail the number and socio-demographic characteristics of recipients. Furthermore, the statistics specify which benefits are received singly and which ones in combination with other benefits. Moreover, data shows the number of recipients entering, leaving or remaining in the individual benefit systems.
