Dear Colleagues,

R&D support the initiative taken by the Commission. As in previous years, the Commission carries out a Staff Housing Survey in Brussels. This is a very important survey, because the results constitute a major element of the cost-ofliving index for Brussels. This year again we are launching the survey over the internet.

We hope that this will save you time, increase the response rate and improve the quality of data. The questionnaire is completely anonymous. The information is confidential and will be used only for statistical purposes.

I would like to encourage you to take some minutes of your time to fill in the questionnaire by Tuesday, July 31st, 2012.

The questionnaire can be found under:
