Did you know...?

The Household Budget Survey (HBS) provides annual information on the nature and destination of consumption expenses, as well as on a range of features relating to household living conditions.

Consumption expenses refer both to the monetary flow into the home for paying for specific final consumption goods and services, and to the value of goods received for self-consumption, self-supply, payment in kind, free or subsidised food and rent of the dwelling in which the household lives (when it is owned or granted by other households or institutions). Expenses are recorded at the time of acquisition, irrespective of whether payment is in cash or in instalments.

The sample size is approximately 24,000 households per year.
