The results of this cross-border household survey contribute to a better understanding of regional aspects of the labor market, social inequalities, and household debt, and thus, contributes to BCL's missions in the area of ??price stability and financial stability.It is a web-survey submitted to 15 000 resident households of the Greater Region of Luxembourg (outside of Luxembourg) in which at least one member works in Luxembourg.
