Concept selected: Average income per consumption unit
DefinitionIncome per household consumption unit is calculated in order to take into account scale economies in households. It is obtained by dividing the total household income by the number of consumption units. This is calculated by using the modified OECD scale, which grants a weight of 1 to the first adult, a weight of 0.5 to the remaining adults, and a weight of 0.3 to those persons under 14 years of age.
Once the income per household consumption unit is calculated, it is assigned to each of its members.
