About 11,000 households to be involved in household expenditure survey
About 11,000 households will be involved in a survey on household expenditure by the Department of Statistics (DOS).
Their input is needed for the 10th Household Expenditure Survery (HES) from October 2012 to September 2013.
The households are divided into 26 groups, with each group being surveyed over two weeks in stages.
From January 21, the 9th group will be surveyed, while a 10th group will be involved from February 4.
These are in areas such as Bedok, Bukit Panjang, Hougang, Marine Parade and Woodlands.
Officers carrying identification cards and letters of authorisation issued by DOS will visit the selected households.
Conducted once every five years, the HES collects information to update the weighting pattern and the basket of goods and services used to compile the Consumer Price Index.
