This version of Sources and Methods: Labour Statistics Volume 6 presents methodological descriptions of household income and expenditure statistics derived from various sources, mainly from household surveys. This information containing descriptions for 98 statistical sources was updated in 2003 and is the second edition of Sources and Methods Volume 6.
The purpose of this volume is twofold: first, to provide basic methodological information on the different household surveys and methods used in each country in compiling such statistics; and second, to illustrate the differences between the various national statistical series with respect to the concepts and methodologies used by countries. The descriptions are presented under standard headings which allow for easy comparison of the different characteristics.
