Methodology of consumption expenditure

2.103 Final consumption expenditure covers transactions in final consumption of goods and services for which a sector is the ultimate bearer of the expense. Government and NPISHs produce non-market goods and services in their production account, where intermediate consumption and compensation of employees are recorded as uses. Final consumption expenditure of these producers relates to the value of their output of non-market goods and services, less their receipts from the sale of non-market goods and services at prices which are not economically significant. However, it also covers goods and services that are purchased by government or NPISHs for ultimate transfer, without transformation, to households.

9.7 In the use of disposable income account, the main resource is disposable income, which is the balancing item carried forward from the secondary distribution of income account. The main use is final consumption expenditure. Final consumption expenditure is the amount of expenditure on consumption goods and services. In the use of adjusted disposable income account, the main resource is adjusted disposable income which is the balancing item carried forward from the redistribution of income in kind account. The main use is actual final consumption. Actual final consumption measures the amount of consumption goods and services acquired.
