Definitions and explanations

The survey has been redesigned and conducted with a smaller sample size in 2020 . The smaller sample size increases the margin of error. New households are interviewed every week during the reference year with the new design. The housing expenditures refer to a period of 12 months from the time of the interview. Previous surveys have been conducted the year after the reference year with retrospective questions about the households expenditures the reference year. 

The statistics do not include households living in institutions, households in own rental property and households engaged in business activities, such as farmers, who can not distinguish their living expenses from the business activities. The statistics do not include households in second-hand housing, student housing, senior housing, households that rented a furnished dwelling and households where there were a lodger. 

Owner-occupied dwellings refer to detached single family houses, semi-detached houses, terraced houses or link-attached houses that the household owns.
