Methods : Questionnaire survey and statistical processing of data (n=1,532 questionnaires received); telephone interviews (+ 50 individuals). Interviews with professionals.

Scale : Département.

Resulting focus : The respondents take up few benefits and aid linked to the RMI. 50% of the answers refer to a lack of awareness and therefore to NTU of benefits and aid. Of the remaining 50%, 20% concern deliberate NTU (real or supposed awareness of entitlements). Some of the respondents knowingly refuse aid for various reasons (stigmatisation, weak advantage, complexity of the process, etc.)
The declared advantage varies considerably from one type of aid to another, but very little between territories.
Beneficiaries of the RMI who have an 'insertion contract' are more likely to take up related aid.
