Calculation of the component

The weighted private consumption expenditure results from the (unweighted) private consumption expenditure of private domestic households in prices of 2010, weighted with the Gini Index of equivalent-income (explanation see component 1). The original data source are the German National Accounts by the Federal Statistical Office.


The data used here were taken from the “GENESIS-Database”, Table “VGR des Bundes – Konsumausgaben der privaten Haushalte (nominal/ preisbereinigt): Deutschland, Jahre, Verwendungszwecke 1991-2014“ (Code 81000-0120). The time series values were price-adjusted on the year 2010 and weighted with Gini-Index standardized on 100 for the year 2000 (component 1).
