    Analyse_15_Household budget survey

    Change in the duration of the household budget survey: analysis of a transition to 15 days

    In this analysis, we examine the effect of changing the survey to 15 days, instead of a full month. To this end, after simulating the data for a 15-day period based on the 2014 and 2016 survey results, we analyse the impact of this change on the average consumption of households and on the breakdown of purchases by product category according to the European COICOP nomenclature. The first publication is available on our website.
