Equipment with consumer durables

Results of the equipment of households with selected consumer durables are available from different surveys – the sample survey of income and expenditure (EVS) and the continuous household budget surveys (LWR). Beyond the equipment with PCs, the survey on the usage of information and communication technologies in households (ICT) also provides information on the equipment with internet access.
