National Household Survey

The Central Statistics Office (CSO) have published findings of a survey examining consumer responses to the economic downturn. The research conducted as part of the CSO’s Quarterly National Household Survey was designed to assess at a high level how households have reacted to the recession.

In all, 79% of all households cut back their spending on at least one of the listed items as a result of the economic climate in the two years before the survey. More than half of households cut back on their spending on groceries.

Further information is available from the CSO website.
