The findings will provide information on the level and distribution of incomes, level and composition of poverty, and social exclusion in Slovakia. This data is also commonly used for social policy-making and serves as a basis for comparisons between Slovakia and other EU-member countries.

The EU SILC 2008 project is directly connected to EU SILC 2005, 2006 and 2007. This year, the collection of data will be performed in 6,000 households selected randomly in more than 300 cities, towns and villages of Slovakia. TASR
