COFACE’s rEUsilience Project: exploring family socio-economic well-being in Europe through interactive data visualisation

COFACE is part of the rEUsilience project which aims to understand how different families respond when they are faced with socio-economic shocks and major decisions regarding managing family life and securing a decent income. A key outcome of this project is a compendium of families’ risks, resources, and resilience which provides users with open-access data to understand the situation of families in Europe. The Compendium is an interactive resource that allows users to explore the relationships between socio-economic risks (unemployment, chronic illness, care responsibilities for young children), resources (high wage, tertiary education, high work intensity), and outcomes (at-risk-of-poverty, poverty gap, material deprivation, poor self-reported health) among families in Europe.  

We created this resource to produce a database that acknowledges the socio-economic inequalities between different families, including the extent to which families are exposed to risks, have the resources to respond to those risks, and how this results in varying socio-economic outcomes. The family perspective to resilience. To put this into practice, we provide this Compendium of over 2 million data points to see which families are more likely to be resilient against socio-economic risks, in which countries, and under which circumstances.  

In addition, the Compendium can also be used to observe family diversity with the ability to dive in to the prevalence of different family types. We also provide the state of play of 24 different social policies across Europe. All in all, this tool transforms individual survey data from EU-SILC into a practical visualisation that can help all those working to support families.  

The Compendium of families’ risks, resources, and resilience can be accessed here.
