Description

The Household Budget Survey (HBS) provides information about consumption expenditure and living standard of private households in Austria. It is carried out every five years. The current HBS was implemented as a random sample survey and was conducted between the end of May 2019 and mid-June 2020 among private households.

The Household Budget Survey describes the spending behaviour of households in Austria in detail and informs about demographic and socio-economic characteristics. Additionally, the weights used for the construction of consumer price indices (CPI/HICP) are obtained from the HBS and provide an analytic tool for the validation of the results of private consumption of National accounts as well.
