The fieldwork stage of the 2012/13 Household Expenditure Survey has been completed. The data is now being checked and anonymised by Island Analysis before the Policy and Research Unit begin performing the analysis and preparing the report on the results.
States Economist, Dr Andy Sloan said,
"More than 1,100 households took part and we would like to extend our thanks to everyone who took the time to complete the survey. The detailed data captured by the survey is crucial, both for maintaining our inflation indices and providing valuable social and economic data on a huge range of topics; covering everything from child care to transport."
The final deadline for forms was 12 July and the fourth and final prize draw for the 2012/13 Household expenditure survey has since taken place. Six prizes were awarded, a first prize of £2,000 and five runner up prizes of £100 each. The winners have been contacted by Island Analysis.
The survey captures (in confidence) information on all types of expenditure, providing a detailed snapshot of Guernsey household's spending patterns, which will be used to update the inflation indices (RPI and RPIX). The results of the survey will be published later this year. Results of previous surveys (conducted approximately once every five years) are available to download from www.gov.gg/hes.
