Household expenditure is derived from the ABS Household Expenditure Survey. This is adjusted based on the composition of household types in the Local Government Area at Census time.
It is a useful indicator of households' ability to save, the composition of household spending and the impact of price changes and inflation on the household sector.
These data are based on the National Institute for Economic and Industry Research micro-simulation modelling. The base data source is the ABS Household Expenditure Survey (HES), (6535.0) conducted every 5 years. These are adjusted based on quarterly estimates of the relative composition of household types within the LGA derived from the ABS Labour Force Monthly Survey (and expenditure profiles of those household types in the HES). The derived figures are constrained by total LGA household disposable income derived from the other models, and updated quarterly based on changes in state level household consumption figures in the ABS State Accounts data.
Data are presented on a "per household" basis, and the household saving ratio is derived by subtracting the total household expenditure for the region from the household disposable income. Household savings can be negative.

Please note that these modelled estimates are subject to change. Estimates are reviewed when more recent and robust data becomes available, particularly when new National or State Accounts data are released by the ABS, or new tax office income data are released. Most recent financial year estimates are based on a combination of factors including Centrelink and Labour Force Survey data, which is replaced by ATO income data when it becomes available. As a result of this, revisions to the most recent 6 quarters (18 months) of data should be anticipated by users, which could change the statistical outcomes.
