A new dataset
464. Household Expenditure Survey 2003
Source: Israel Central Bureau of Statistics
The survey, conducted annually by Israel Central Bureau of Statistics, aims to
obtain data on the component of household budgets, as well as additional data
that characterize various aspects of living standard such as consumption
patterns. Following major improvements in the CBS procedures and repeated
requests of ISDC for additional variables, the CBS decided to extend the PUF
dataset to include nearly all the expenditure items. Consequently, the
expenditure record structure has been sliced into multiple short lines each of
which contains only one item. Furthermore, the household record now includes
more details of the apartment and the socio-economic score of the locality of
residence. The individual record has also been extended. Economic Branch and
Occupation are now classified by two rather than one digit code.
The dataset will be released by ISDC with both SAS and SPSS control statements.
N= 6,218 households and 21,058 individuals.
