New Data: SHS 2013

Posted by ARDC on May 6, 2016 in News

The Survey of Household Spending 2013 (SHS) is now available for use by researchers at the ARDC. This survey provides exciting new opportunities for research into household income and expenditure across Canada.

The SHS primarily collects detailed information on household expenditures. It also collects information about the annual income of household members (from administrative data files), demographic characteristics of the household, certain dwelling characteristics (e.g., type, age and tenure) and certain information on household equipment (e.g., electronics and communications equipment). The survey is conducted annually in the 10 provinces and usually every other year in the territories.
