This public-use microdata file presents data from the 2007 Survey of Household Spending (SHS) conducted in January until March 2008. Information about the spending habits, dwelling characteristics and household equipment of Canadian households during 2007 was obtained by asking people in the 10 provinces and three territories to recall their expenditures for the previous calendar year (spending habits) or as of the time of the interview (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.
