  • [01] Household spending averages 1,792 per month

    Average monthly consumption spending by Greek households totals 1,792 euros, with the biggest portion going food products (17.1 pct), housing (10.69 pct), durable goods (7.5 pct) and clothing-footwear (8.38 pct), according to a report on family budgets in the period 2004-2005. The report was compiled by Greece's statistical service and released on Monday.

    The report, published by the National Statistics Service, said Greek households changed their consumption model during the period 1999-2004, spending less on food, clothing-footwear-durable and other goods and more on communications.

    Food products (17.1 pct), alcoholic drinks (3.99 pct), clothing-footwear (8.38 pct), housing (10.69 pct), durable goods (7.5 pct), healthcare (7.15 pct), transportation (12.60 pct), communication (4.52 pct), recreation (5.03 pct), education (2.86 pct), hotel-coffee-restaurants (9.61 pct) and various goods and services (10.57 pct) accounted for household spending.

    The report showed that 22.08 percent of food product spending accounted for the purchase of meat products, 8.27 pct on fisheries, 18.4 pct on dairy, 7.56 pct on fruit, 11.55 pct on vegetables and 5.5 pct on oils. The remaining around 25 percent accounted for spending on bread, cereals and wheat. The statistics service said the 2004-05 report showed a decline in spending on meat, vegetables, fruit, coffee, tea, cocoa and increase in spending on fisheries, oils, sugar, honey, mineral water, juices and beverage compared with the previous report (1998-99).

    The report was conducted on a sample of 6,555 private households with 17,386 members in the period from February 2004 to January 2005.
