HOUSEHOLD FINAL CONSUMPTION EXPENDITURE January 30-February 1, 2013 Kingston, Jamaica
Overview Background Classification Estimation Procedure - Commodity Flow Final consumption from private non profit institutions serving households (NPISH)
Background Household final consumption expenditure consists of expenditure of resident households on the consumption of goods and services.
Background Household Final Consumption Expenditure (HFCE) includes : goods and services bought for final consumption by households goods produced for own final consumption by households Housing services of owner-occupied dwellings Services produced by employing paid domestic staff
Classification HFCE is classified using the Classification of Individual Consumption According to Purpose (COICOP)
Estimation Method Household Final consumption Expenditure (HFCE) = Total expenditure in domestic market – Direct purchases in domestic market by non-resident households + Direct purchases abroad by resident households
Estimation Method contd Total expenditure in domestic market Total expenditure of goods Imported Commodity Flow - Imported consumer goods Local Commodity Flow - sales from local production obtained from the production approach Total expenditures on services Services are estimated using data on local sales obtained from the production approach - Household Expenditure Survey is used as the benchmark estimate - Other sources such as the Survey of Living Conditions are also used in estimation and analysis of results
Estimation Method contd Local Goods and Services Local goods and services are apportioned to intermediate consumption and to the relevant final consumption e.g. HFCE, GFCE, export etc. Taxes on products (incl. GCT) and margins are added to the values allocated to HFCE to arrive at consumption at purchasers price
Estimation Method contd Imported Commodity Flow For national accounts purposes, the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS) used in the foreign trade statistics in respect of imports and exports of merchandise is converted to the Standard International Trade Classification (SITC), Rev. 4.
Estimation Method contd Imported Commodity Flow All imported goods (classified by SITC) are assigned an end-use, based on whether they are used as - consumer goods - raw material or - capital goods. Account is taken of any item having more than one end use.
Estimation Method contd This end use assignment is based on the United Nations Classification by Broad Economic Categories (BEC). The process of assigning end use classification involved an inter-divisional working committee including representatives from the Customs Department.
Estimation Method contd One assumption of the commodity flow method is that all goods are used up during the period in which they are sold or imported. Adjustments therefore have to be made whenever there are unusual occurrences such as hurricanes where the use of increased imports might carry over into the following period.
Estimation Method contd Imported Commodity Flow The estimation process for HFCE takes account of only those imported goods classified as consumer goods from the end use classification Taxes on products and margins are added to the c.i.f. value of imports to arrive at purchasers prices
Estimation Method contd Direct purchases abroad by residents /Direct purchases in domestic market by non-residents Compiled based on the estimates from the Balance of Payments
