Living conditions

The department Living Conditions analyses a large number of economic and social issues related to well-being and social cohesion. Against the backdrop of demographic, institutional and socio-economic transformations, these analyses help to improve the understanding of the functioning of society, to better understand the living conditions of individuals as well as their behaviour and opinions, to evaluate the impact of public policies on the areas studied and finally, to identify social lines of fracture. In addition to Luxembourg society, as an important research topic for the department, its work goes well beyond the national framework and includes both European and extra-European international comparisons.

More specifically, this work focuses on the following areas:

  • Inequalities of income and wealth
  • Living conditions, poverty and wealth
  • Public redistribution (analysed, inter alia, through the use of static and dynamic microsimulation Social cohesion (integration, multiculturalism, ...)
  • Social and family policies (in particular childhood and reconciliation of family and professional life)
  • Education (access, inequalities of academic success, ...)
  • Economic impact of changes in the health status of individuals linked to ageing
  • Health inequalities (evolution and determinants of these inequalities, impact of social policies on them)
