Data collector: FOCUS, s.r.o.,
Sampling procedure: The interviews were collected by interviewers from the fieldwork agency who interviewed care workers whom they were able to contact. Quotas on the share of carers from each of the 8 administrative regions of Slovakia based on the 2013 Slovak labor force survey figures were used to guarantee regional representativity. The maximal number of interviews one interviewer was allowed to conduct was limited to 10 interviews.
Number of cases: 434
Abstract: The cAreworkers 2016 survey maps the situation of women from Slovakia providing elder care in Austria at the time of the survey or those who were providing care in Austria at least until 2013. The purpose was to establish where the carers are employed in Austria, what employment forms they use, how frequent is their commute to Slovakia, how did they find their current work, what kind of care do they provide, which means of transport they use, whom they take care of in Austria and under which conditions. Other sections of the survey focused on the decision to start working in Austria, on the family background and their care responsibilities before working in Austria. The survey replicates the cAreworkers 2011 survey and broadens its scope by questions about life after the return from Austria for those care workers who were no longer active in elder care provision and were living in Slovakia at the time of the survey.
