Description: Household-level data on consumption expenditure underpin key policy questions, both microeconomic and macroeconomic, including monetary policy, tax policy, social security, and their relation to consumption, savings, and inequality. While the measurement of consumer expenditures at the household level poses difficult challenges, the last few years have seen much innovation in how such data can be collected and analyzed. This workshop will bring together international expert to consider these innovations as well as the application of new and improved sources of data to key areas of policy and research. The workshop wil stress the close interaction between economnis theory, measurement, and econometric methods.
