The TFR Survey

The TFR Survey

Ad hoc survey by Eurisko for Anima Research Lab

18 April 2008


This ad hoc survey has been prepared by Eurisko for Anima Research Lab.

In July 2007, a set of questions regarding the “Trattamento di Fine Rapporto” (TFR) have been asked to a sample of 1.119 employees of the private sector (excluding the financial and the insurance sector), in particular:

  • 1.016 phone interviews (From 11 to 25 July);
  • 103 face to face interviews (From 16 to 20 July).

The database is focused primarily on:
– employees’ socio-demographic background;
– attitudes towards risk and savings;
– political belief;
– financial education and the way people collect information;
– choice concerning the TFR.

The individual microdata (in Stata format) for all the 1.119 individuals in the survey can be freely accessed here, upon registration. The full documentation of the survey is also available here. Both the questionnaire and the documentation are in Italian.

Among the attached documents, you can also find a presentation (in Power Point format) that provides a brief description of the results obtained from the survey.
