Household Expenditure is modelled based on a set of expenditure items collected every 5 years in the ABS Household Expenditure Survey.

Areas with good public transport infrastructure and access to jobs may spend less on transport and more on discretionary spending such as entertainment. More disadvantaged areas may spend a higher proportion of their income on food and transport. An examination of the distribution of household spending per household may provide insights into the socio-economic status of the area.
