Household Consumption in the Republic of Macedonia, 2012


The systematized data obtained with the "Household Budget Survey", which was conducted in 2012, are presented in the Statistical Review No. “Household Consumption in the Republic of Macedonia, 2012”. In our opinion, these data could serve to analyze the living standards of the households in the Republic of Macedonia. The Review is the follow-up of the same publication published for 2011.

The data published in the Review refer to: the average available assets according to the sources, the amount of used assets according to the purpose of consumption, the amount of money used, the quantities of foodstuffs and other commodities intended for personal consumption, as well to the household possession of durable goods.

The data are systematized for all the households in total and according to the socio-economic category of the household: agricultural, mixed and non-agricultural.

The categorization of households into socio-economic categories provides an insight into the current differences in the level and structure of the household personal consumption, which is a crucial material component of the living standards of the population.

The data from this survey are used to draw up lines indicating the poverty in Macedonia, by regions and by household types.

Moreover, the data from this survey are used for drawing up weights to estimate the Consumer price index.

For easier and proper use of the data presented in this Review, methodological instructions and notes are given.

The State Statistical Office of the Republic of Macedonia hopes that this publication will meet its objective of providing the general public and data users with the basic data on the household income and expenditure in a given period of time. We will therefore highly appreciate all remarks or suggestions aimed at improving the publication.
