ConsumerExpenditures

ConsumerExpenditures

Alternative names: PUMD

The Consumer Expenditure Survey (CE) collects data on expenditures, income, and demographics in the United States. The public-use microdata (PUMD) files provide this information for individual respondents without any information that could identify respondents. PUMD files include adjustments for information that is missing because respondents were unwilling or unable to provide it. The files also have been adjusted to reduce the likelihood of identifying respondents, either directly or through inference. The task is to predict, whether the expenditure is a gift or not. Household ids change from year to year - this is a property of the data source.
