- Most of the figures in IPOLIS are estimates based on surveys data. Therefore, one needs to be aware that there are uncertainties in these figures related to both sampling and non-sampling errors and these should be considered when interpreting results in either a cross-country or cross-time comparative frame.
- IPOLIS is a multi-source indicator database. These data sources have different time span (e.g. they may take place yearly, biannually, every four or five years), while some of them have several versions of release (new versions including corrections and updates). This means that data in IPOLIS may differ from what is publicly available by the data owner (e.g. Eurostat) in a given point in time.

About the IPOLIS project
IPOLIS is a comprehensive, multidimensional, cross-country and over-time comparative database on the quality of life of vulnerable groups in European societies.
Quality of life is multidimensional concept. It involves material living conditions, labour market participation, education and skills, health and risk behaviour, social connectedness and environmental quality.
While data and indicators in this field are easily available, IPOLIS provides at the same time an integrated, multidimensional frame for analyses and interpretation, a selection of most relevant measures and a visulization tool to explore the database in a flexible, user-oriented way.
IPOLIS relies both on data from the European Statistical System and other surveys, databases.
