* Consumer Expenditure Survey Program

This program consists of two surveys -- the quarterly Interview survey and the Diary survey that provide information on the buying habits of American consumers, including data on their expenditures, income, and consumer unit (families and single consumers) characteristics.

Annual income and expenditures integrated from the Interview and Diary surveys in varying detail, classified by income, age, consumer unit size, and other demographic characteristics of consumer units, since 1984. Annual income and expenditures from the Interview and Diary surveys by selected consumer unit characteristics, since 1980.

Quarterly Interview survey data by selected consumer unit characteristics, since 1984.

Coverage

* The surveys target the total noninstitutionalized population (urban and rural) of the United States in 1980, 1984 and thereafter. The surveys targeted the urban noninstitutionalized population in 1981 through 1983. * The data are collected in independent quarterly Interview and weekly Diary surveys of approximately 5,000 sample households. Each survey has its own independent sample, and each collects data on household income and socioeconomic characteristics. * The Interview survey includes monthly out-of-pocket expenditures such as housing, apparel, transportation, health care, insurance, and entertainment. * The Diary survey includes weekly expenditures of frequently purchased items such as food and beverages, tobacco, personal care products, and nonprescription drugs and supplies.
