The larger the household, the lower the expenditures per adult equivalent
Single-person households show clear gender differences
in the expenditure structure. Male single-person households spend considerably
more on eating out
Not only size and composition of a household influence the level and structure of expenditures but also age and educational level of the main earner. Young households spend relatively more on leisure and eating out whereas older households show higher expenditure shares for housing, food and health. In respect to the highest educational level of the main earner both household and equivalent expenditures increase with a higher level of education. Within the expenditure structure the shares for leisure increase with a higher level of education while those for food and non-alcoholic beverages decrease.
