Summary
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
