Income and consumption

The evolution of the income situation of households and of the level and structure of consumption expenditure is among the most important data on the living standards of the population. The Household budget and living conditions survey of HCSO collects data on the income and consumption of households. We utilise these so-called micro-level data for the calculation of national accounts (macrodata) from income and consumption side.
