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 quarterly Interview Survey component of the CES was designed to gather data on major items of expense, household characteristics, and income. Expenditures examined in this survey are those which respondents could be expected to recall fairly accurately for three months or longer. Consumer units, which are roughly equivalent to households, are interviewed once every three months over a 15-month period. During the fifth and final interview, an annual supplement is used to generate a financial profile of the household as a whole. Included in this profile is information on unemployment compensation, alimony and child support, and changes in assets and liabilities. For each quarter of 1982 and 1983 and for the first quarter of 1984 there are four files of data in this collection. The Consumer Unit Characteristics and Income (FMLY) files contain consumer unit characteristics, consumer unit income, characteristics and earnings of the reference person, and characteristics and earnings of the spouse. The Member Characteristics and Income (MEMB) files supply selected characteristics for each consumer unit member, including reference person and spouse. Each record in these files includes three months of data for a consumer unit member. The Detailed Expenditures (MTAB) files furnish monthly data at the Universal Classification Code (UCC) level. In these files expenditures for each consumer unit are classified according to UCC categories and are specified as gifts or non-gifts. The income (ITAB) files contain monthly data for consumer unit characteristics and income at the UCC level. Two additional files, the Publication Aggregate file and the Publication Label file, are designed for use with the printed publication based on these data
