New Expenditure Data in the Panel Study of Income Dynamics: Comparisons with the Consumer Expenditure Survey Data

Publication Abstract

Li, Geng, Robert F. Schoeni, Sheldon H. Danziger, and Kerwin Charles. 2010. "New Expenditure Data in the Panel Study of Income Dynamics: Comparisons with the Consumer Expenditure Survey Data." Monthly Labor Review, 133(2): 29-39.

New data in the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) align closely with corresponding measures from the Consumer Expenditure Survey (CE), for each broad category in the former; imputed total PSID expenditures are very close to total CE expenditures, and cross-sectional life-cycle estimates of household expenditures are similar across the two surveys, both for total expenditures and for the distinct categories

Country of focus: United States of America.
