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, qualsevol salari en espècie i el lloguer imputat a l'habitatge, malgrat que aquests últims no pressuposin cap flux monetari.

La despesa de consum de les llars s'ordena segons la nova classificació de despeses de consum: COICOP/HBS, estructurada en dotze grans grups:

  • Grup 1: Aliments i begudes no alcohòliques
  • Grup 2: Begudes alcohòliques i tabac
  • Grup 3: Vestit i calçat
  • Grup 4: Habitatge, aigua, electricitat, gas i altres combustibles
  • Grup 5: Mobles, parament de la llar i articles per al manteniment corrent de la llar
  • Grup 6: Sanitat
  • Grup 7: Transport
  • Grup 8: Comunicacions
  • Grup 9: Oci i cultura
  • Grup 10: Educació
  • Grup 11: Restaurants i hotels
  • Grup 12: Altres béns i serveis

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.
