Abstract

This study examines some of the issues that are often encountered when analysing the socio-economic information of expenditure surveys using the Colombian 1985 urban expenditure survey as an example. This study discusses the problem of estimating prices when only information on expenditures and demographic characteristics is available, the options available when aggregating commodities and defining demographic or labour information, and the advantages and drawbacks in choosing total expenditure as a proxy for income or as the metric for poverty measurement. The study also applies non- parametric density estimation as a form of exploratory data analysis and as a means to learn from the data about the most proper parametric specification.
