Dataset: Expenditures – Home from the Consumer Expenditures - 2016 Database
Average annual household expenditures for housing and various household products other than food.
Shows average annual household expenditures among consumers in the United States for 600+ categories of expenditures, representing a model of spending potential. Data are from the nationwide Consumer Expenditure Survey (CEX), conducted annually by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics and the US Census Bureau. Easy Analytic Software Inc. (EASI) applies its statistical modeling technology and demographic profiles of various geographic areas to CEX data. The data are modeled against updated demographic estimates using a proprietary method to develop estimates for 2016 and 5-year projections. Definitions of individual expenditure items can be found in the CEX glossary:
EASI data series present demographic and economic characteristics for the United States, for states, counties, census tracts, and ZIP Codes. Data from the Bureau of the Census provide geographic references and benchmarks for demographic updates and forecasts, including: 2010 Census of Population and Housing PL 94 – 171; American Community Survey (ACS), and Public Use Microdata Samples (PUMS). Other related sources are: Annual Demographic Survey, Current Population Reports (P20; P25; P60), and numerous special Census reports. EASI has developed a series of EASI-based proprietary models for updating estimates and forecasting projections. For a more detailed description of EASI methodology, see
