Income, consumption, living conditions

Consumption expenditure - New Länder and Berlin-East

Results of the consumption expenditure of households are available from different surveys – the sample survey of income and expenditure (EVS) and the continuous household budget surveys (LWR). With a coverage of some 60,000 households, the EVS is the largest voluntary household survey. It is conducted every five years and, due to its large sample size, it is particularly well suited to represent detailed results for highly different household groups. Methodological notes
