Palestine - Expenditure and Consumption Survey, PECS 1998 (For documentation only)


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.

Due to lack of detail 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. Some expenses/per month may be very high due to exceptional conditions (such as health care) and are not multiplied by 12 to be annualized (may be by 6).

All corresponding survey documentation should be checked for expenditure periodicity reference

Annual Expenditure amounts should be reported in country national currency
