Definitions and data sources

The first graph shows the proportion of households lacking selected consumer durables.

The second graph shows how the proportion of households lacking selected durables varies by level of household income.  To improve its statistical reliability, the data is the average for the latest three years.

The data source for both graphs is the Continuous Household Survey.  Note the the relevant questions were not asked in the 2009/10 survey.

Overall adequacy of the indicator: limited.  The choice of consumer durables in the analysis is largely driven by the data availability and is both somewhat arbitrary and rather limited.
