INTRODUCTION The Household Expenditure Survey (HES) was the first conducted in the year 1957/58. Beginning 1993/94 it was carried out at an interval of five years and the recent survey was undertaken in 2009/2010. The survey covered private households in urban and rural areas.
The main objective of HES was to collect information on the level and pattern of consumption expenditure by households on a comprehensive range of goods and services. This information served as the basis for determining the goods and services to be included in the basket of the Consumer Price Index (CPI). It was also used to represent the expenditure pattern of households in Malaysia.
However, over the years, demand for data from the survey has increased and it is now used for several purposes. HES has becomes an invaluable source of information for government and private sectors, researchers and university students.
