ELSI Short Form: User Manual for a Direct Measure of Living Standards
The Economic Living Standard Index Short Form (ELSISF) is a shortened version of the ELSI scale and can be substituted for it in many contexts. Like the full scale, the ELSISF provides a valid and reliable survey tool for measuring people's economic standard of living. The ELSISF tool yields a score that is obtained by combining information from a set of items that require 4-6 minutes to administer. The ELSISF User Manual will be updated from time to time on the basis of feedback from users and results from future research.
