Methodological note

Són despeses de la llar tot flux monetari que les economies de la llar destinen a l'adquisició d'articles de consum, més els béns de subministrament, autoconsum o qualsevol salari en espècie, malgrat que aquests últims no pressuposin cap flux monetari.

Les escales d'equivalència converteixen el nombre de membres de la llar en unitats de consum. La despesa de les llars passa a anomenar-se despesa equivalent. Les més utilitzades són les anomenades escales OCDE modificada, que pren els següents valors:

  • Sustentador principal: 1
  • Adult major de 13 anys: 0,5
  • Infant de 13 anys i menys: 0,3

Expenditure is presented classified according to the Classification of the Functions of Individual Consumption (COICOP/HBS) until 2015. From 2016 onwards, the European Classification of the Functions of Individual Consumption (ECOICOP) is used. These two classifications are not entirely comparable.

Statistics on Household Consumer Expenditures are conducted upon the basis of the Family Budget Survey carried out each year by the INE. Idescat processes this data in detail on a yearly basis, expanding the results for Catalonia.
