Description
  • Abstract

    The ongoing Consumer Expenditure Survey (CES) provides detailed information on income and expenditures and also furnishes the Bureau of Labor Statistics with data needed to maintain and review the Consumer Price Index. The Diary, or recordkeeping, component of the CES contains expenditure data for small items purchased on a daily or weekly basis. Survey participants from consumer units, which are roughly equivalent to households, keep daily expense records which itemize all purchases made during a two-week period. Expenditures focused on include small, frequently purchased items such as food, beverages, food consumed away from home, gasoline, housekeeping supplies, nonprescription drugs and medical supplies, and personal care products and services. Three types of files for each quarter of 1982 and 1983 are supplied in this collection. The Consumer Unit Characteristics and Income files (FMLY) contain consumer unit characteristics, consumer unit income, characteristics and earnings of the reference person, and characteristics and earnings of the spouse. The Member Characteristics (MEMB) files present selected characteristics for each consumer unit member, including reference person and spouse, and the Detailed Expenditures (EXPN) files contain monthly expenditure data at the Universal Classification Code (UCC) level.

Sampling
This survey is based on a national probability sample of households. The sampling frame was generated from the 1970 Census 100 Percent Detail File. Each selected sample unit is requested to keep two one-week diaries of expenditures over consecutive weeks. The earliest possible day for placing a diary with a household is predesignated so that each day of the week has an equal chance to start the reference week, and the diaries are evenly spaced throughout the year. During the last six weeks of the year, the diary sample is supplemented to twice its normal size to increase the reportings of types of expenditures unique to the holiday season.
Collection Mode
  • Rural data collection for this survey was discontinued in 1981 and not resumed until 1984. Thus, the Diary Survey for 1982-1983 contains only urban data. Codebooks for this data collection are machine-readable only.
