Geoffrey Paulin - The Consumer Expenditure Surveys (CE) are the most detailed source of expenditure, income, asset and liability, and demographic data collected directly from households by the Federal government. Tabular and microdata from the CE are available for free download from this national sample. For these reasons, the data are used to teach how to evaluate consumer interests, and how they may be affected by policy changes, economic conditions, etc.; in advanced student research (e.g., thesis or dissertation); and other applications. This session features presentations from graduate and undergraduate course professors, and graduate students using the data. Following these brief presentations, the floor opens to the audience for an exchange of ideas on how to use CE data for their classrooms—whether they are professors or students.
