Asking consumption questions in general purpose surveys

Martin Browning, Thomas Crossley and Guglielmo Weber

Economic Journal, 2003, vol. 113, issue 491, F540-F567

Abstract: In many research areas it is desirable to have information on household total expenditure ('consumption'). We draw evidence from several sources on the usefulness of recall consumption questions. We conclude that valid information can be collected by adding specific recall questions to general purpose surveys, and provide recommendations on how to do so.
