Safe Room Access FRS data
Safe Room access datasets for FRS data from 2005/06 are available in addition to the versions available under the standard End User Licence (EUL), held at the UK Data Archive under SN 7196, Family Resources Survey and Households Below Average Income: Safe Room Access.

The Safe Room access data are currently only available to UK HE/FE applicants and for access from the UK Data Archive's Safe Room at the University of Essex, Colchester. Prospective users of the Safe Room access version of the FRS/HBAI will need to fulfil requirements additional to those associated with standard End User Licence datasets. Full details of the application requirements are available from Guidance on applying for the Family Resources Survey: Secure Access.

Further information about the FRS can be found on the Family Resources Survey pages on the Department for Work and Pensions web site.

European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC)
In 2005, the European Union (EU) made a legal obligation for member states to collect additional statistics on income and living conditions (EU-SILC). In addition to this the EU-SILC data cover poverty and social exclusion. These statistics are used to help plan and monitor European social policy by comparing poverty indicators and changes over time across the EU. The EU-SILC requirement was integrated into the General Household Survey (GHS)/General Lifestyle Survey (GLF) in 2005. Since the closure of the GLF in 2012 the cross-sectional element of EU-SILC has been collected via the FRS. The FRS also provides the first wave of the EU-SILC longitudinal element, which is carried out by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). Please refer to study documentation for further details.

The FRS aims to: support the monitoring of the social security programme; support the costing and modelling of changes to national insurance contributions and social security benefits; provide better information for the forecasting of benefit expenditure.
From April 2002, the FRS was extended to include Northern Ireland.

Detailed information regarding anonymisation within the FRS can be found in User Guide 2 of the dataset documentation.

Edition History:
For the second edition (July 2009), correction was made to variables TOTCAPBU and TOTCAPB2. Edits made to the PENPROV table were reviewed and new edits, based on revised criteria, applied to the dataset (see Penprov note for details).

For the third edition (October 2014) the data have been re-grossed following revision of the FRS grossing methodology to take account of the 2011 Census mid-year population estimates. New variable GROSS4 has been added to the dataset.

Main Topics:
Household characteristics (composition, tenure type); tenure and housing costs including Council Tax, mortgages, insurance, water and sewage rates; welfare/school milk and meals; educational grants and loans; children in education; informal care (given and received); childcare; occupation and employment; health restrictions on work; travel to work; children's health; wage details; self-employed earnings; personal and occupational pension schemes; income and benefit receipt; income from pensions and trusts, royalties and allowances, maintenance and other sources; income tax payments and refunds; National Insurance contributions; earnings from odd jobs; children's earnings; interest and dividends; investments; National Savings products; assets.
