    The Integrated Household Survey (IHS) is a composite survey which brings together in a single dataset some of the data from a number of the National Institute of Statistics social surveys. Integrated Household Survey (IHS) research is very complex due to the number of variables it contains. The main goal for the design of this investigation was to obtain information on the main aspects that characterize the standard of living and quality of life. The Household Budget Survey (HBS) allows us to ascertain the consumption expenditure of households residing in Romania, as well as the distribution of said expenditure among the different consumption divisions. The Household Budgets Survey meets the priority information needs of users in the social field, providing the necessary elements for analysis and possible ways to improve the quality of life in Romania.
