Results of the Eurosystem’s first Household Finance and Consumption Survey
The European Central Bank (ECB) was publishing the results of the first wave of the Eurosystem Household Finance and Consumption Survey (HFCS), a joint Eurosystem project carried out with the support of national statistical institutes of three euro area countries. The reference year for most country surveys is 2010. The survey is the topic of the first two issues of a new Statistics Paper Series launched by the ECB. The HFCS provides detailed household-level data on various aspects of household balance sheets and related economic and demographic variables, including income, voluntary pensions, employment and measures of consumption.
