Reconciliation between work and family life (module in the SLFS)

The «Reconciliation between work and family life» module collects data on the subjective assessment of individuals' labour participation and the relationship between possible lack of available extra-familial care for children or adults. In 2012 questions will also be asked on flexible working conditions in connection with care responsibilities and on career-breaks or working time reduction due to care responsibilities. The module is conducted according to Eurostat specifications with the exception of parental leave for which there is no nationwide regulation.
