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.
