This edition contains FIS data items
A file containing unit record data from the 1998-99 Household Expenditure Survey (HES). It contains no names or addresses and the detail for some data items has been suppressed or reduced. 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 third edition of the file and includes data from the Fiscal Incidence Study. It contains additional information on taxes on production (previously referred to as indirect taxes) based on the revised methodology developed for the 2003-04 study of the effects of government benefits and taxes on household income. This will facilitate comparison of taxes on production between the 1998-99 and 2003-04 CURFs.
