The purpose of the Survey of Living Conditions was to provide comprehensive data on health through a cross-sectional study on disease symptoms, health problems, health services and lifestyle habits. Data were collected through telephone interviews using a sample size of 13,748 individuals over 16 years of age, and 8,164 individuals successfully completed the interview.

For 2015, the survey merged with the European Health Interview Survey. Future surveys will be conducted every six years rather than three years.
