Introductory Guide to the Living Costs and Food Survey/Expenditure and Food Survey

PDF, Word

This guide is designed to pull together essential information about the Expenditure and Food Survey deposited by both the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). Although the guide draws heavily on pre-existing documentation it is intended to supplement rather than replace the user guides produced by the Office for National Statistics, which should be considered definitive. Users should therefore consult the user guides before using the data.

EFS Teaching Dataset

An EFS 2005-2006 teaching dataset is available (Study Number: 6117). The dataset can help class tutors to incorporate empirical data into their courses and thus develop students' skills in quantitative methods of analysis and their knowledge of large-scale government surveys.
