description:
This public-use microdata file presents the data of the 2000 Survey of Household spending (SHS) conducted in January through March 2001. Information about the spending habits, dwelling characteristics and household equipment of Canadian households during 2000 was obtained by asking people in the ten provinces and three territories to recall their exp enditures for the previous calendar year (spending habits) or as of December 31st (dwelling characteristics and household equipment). Conducted since 1997, the Survey of Household Spending integrates most of the content found in the Family Expenditure Survey and the Household Facilities and equipment Survey. Many data from these two surveys are comparable to the Survey of Household spending data. However, some differences related to methodology, to data quality and to definitions must be considered before comparing these data. See "Notes" and consult the "Users Guide". Dwelling characteristics include: type of dwelli ng, repairs needed (major, minor, none), tenure, year of move, period of construction, number of rooms, number of bathrooms, principal heating equipment and fuel, age of principal heating equipment, principal heating fuel for hot water, and principal cooking fuel. Household equipment includes: washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, telephones, cellular phones, compact disc players, cablevision, video cassette recorders, computers, modems, internet use from home, televisions, and vehicles. Characteristics of the household, reference person, and spouse of reference person are also provided
