Egypt - Household Income, Expenditure, and Consumption Survey, HIECS 2015


Definition Including annual amounts of consumption expenditures; if possible split following the COICOP international standard classification).

All expenditure variables are recorded as yearly amounts. Amounts are annualized if not provided as such in original data.

Annual expenditure amounts should be reported in country national currency.

Due to lack of details in many datasets, ERF constructs the expenditure variables, even if not all of the items are available. Any taxes included in the expenditure variables are deducted if possible.

A check for outliers is necessary before conducting any analysis on the expenditure data. Extreme cases were detected in the original variables; however the appropriate method to deal with it was left to the user's judgment.
