Breach in the time series at 2015. Before 2015, questions regarding contact with siblings and parents were posed to everyone with siblings and parents who were alive. In 2015, only persons who did not live with these family members were asked these questions. To obtain comparable time series, persons who live with their parents or siblings in 2015 have been coded as though they report having frequent contact with these family members, i.e. that they are in contact with them at least once a month. This still results in some deviations between figures for 2015 and earlier figures, particularly in the youngest age group (16-24 years), among whom many live with their family.
