A file containing unit record data from the Household Expenditure Survey (HES) and the Survey of Income and Housing (SIH). It is confidentialised and as such contains no names and addresses and the detail for some items of data has been reduced. Four individual microdata files are available: the basic files for HES and SIH are distributed on CD-ROM or can be accessed via the Remote Access Data Laboratory; the expanded files for HES and SIH are only able to be accessed via the Remote Access Data Laboratory. Subject to the limitation of sample size and the data classifications used, it is possible to manipulate the data, produce tabulations and undertake statistical analyses to individual specifications.
This is the second edition of this file and includes additional data from the Fiscal incidence Study on the HES files only. The new items relate to the effects of selected government benefits and taxes on household income, and are derived from the survey data in conjunction with other data. The items include household taxes on production (previously referred to as indirect taxes), social transfers in kind (STIK) (previously referred to as indirect benefits) and final household income (disposable income plus STIK minus taxes on production).
