Price data to accompany IFS Derived FES/EFS/LCFS Variables

Dataset

The IFS have made available a set of derived expenditure and demographic data based on the Family Expenditure Survey (FES) and its successors the Expenditure and Food Survey (EFS) and the Living Costs and Food Survey (LCFS). For many applications, researchers need to combine the expenditure data with prices data. Prices data for the goods and services in the expenditure data is available at ONS but there is some work that needs to be done to create price data that can be combined with the expenditure data. In order to facilitate use of the FES Derived Variables, these data contain price data that has been created to combine with the FES derived expenditure variables.
