Select indicator
* indicates monthly or quarterly data series
The table shows the level of household consumption for over 100 countries. The data are quarterly, i.e. they show the total market value of all goods and services consumed by households during one quarter. The data are in nominal terms which means that changes over time reflect both the changes in the volume of goods and services consumed as well as their prices.

The data are updated every day so that the numbers are the latest ones published by the national authorities. The first column with numbers shows the latest data available. The next two columns show the percent change in household consumption from the previous quarter and from the same quarter last year.

Household consumption is the main component of the GDP, constituting about 60 percent of GDP. It is more stable over time compared to investment purchases by firms as households try to smooth their consumption over time and make it less dependent on income fluctuations. Its contribution to the the business cycle is therefore less prominent than the contribution of investment. Nonetheless, being such a major part of the economy, even relatively small fluctuations in household consumption have important implications for the overall economy.

Definition: The market value of all goods and services, including durable products, purchased by households.
