Table description


Expenditure by amounts spent and household characteristics such as size of the household, composition of the household, age of the breadwinner, living conditions, income deciles
and income quartiles by size of the household and distribution channels. Classifications according to income and main source of income in preliminary results until 2010 are based on incomedata from the year preceding the year under review.

Data available: 1992-2010.
Status of the figures:
The figures in this table are final for 1992-2009. Figures of 2010 are preliminary.

Changes as of 6 October 2016:
None, this table is stopped.

Description topics

Total all households
Average amount spent
Average annual spending per household.
Average spending (%)
Standard error (%)
Standard error as a percentage of the expenses concerned.
Sample errors are generated because only part of a specific population is
surveyed. Such errors do not occur if an integral survey is conducted.
Recurrent sampling will not always lead to the same results.
The difference between an estimate based on a sample and the real value,
i.e. the value based on an integral survey, is referred to as the
estimate error. It can be quantified by means of the standard error. The
standard error indicates the reliability intervals for the calculation of
the estimated average expenditure. The following instance may elucidate:
In the 2000 sample, the average expenditure on food was 4,289 euro. The
standard error of food 1%, that is 43 euro.
Thee 95% reliability margins for the average expenditure on food are
4,205 euro (= 4,289 - 1.96 x 43) and 4,373 euro (= 4,289 + 1.96 x 43).
The 95% reliability interval is defined as the chance that the actual
average expenditure on food is included in the interval (4,205 euro;
4,373 euro) is 95%.
