The Consumer Expenditure Survey (CE) is the most detailed source of expenditure, income, asset and liability, and demographic data collected directly from households by the Federal government.  Tabular and microdata from the CE are available for free download from this national sample.  This session features works-in-progress using these data to assess economic status of different consumers. The first describes parental expenditures for children. The second examines relationships between income and restaurant choices (full service, fast food, etc.). The third examines the changing characteristics and food expenditures for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program participants before, during, and after the recent recession, both in NYC and nationwide. The fourth compares young adults (so-called “Millennials”) today to young adults 10 years ago to assess the effects of the recession.
