Consumer Expenditure Surveys

Consumer Expenditure Surveys Tables (CEX)

This page provides links to CE tables that contain expenditure and income data for selected demographic and geographic characteristics by reference person or consumer unit (CU). The tables provide population means (as opposed to means of those reporting), percent shares across all items, and variance measures (standard error and coefficient of variation), and aggregate expenditure shares across selected groups.

To aid in the interpretation of CE Tables, we suggest reviewing the Tables Getting Started Guide.
