This Consumer Expenditure Surveys LABSTAT Database Getting Started Guide provides an overview of the CE LABSTAT database. The data are available through the following search tools:

  • Data Finder allows you to search for selected time series for variables by characteristics, create charts and tables, and export the data into Excel and CSV.
  • One-Screen Data Search allows you to produce customized time series by households and their characteristics. Data can be exported into Excel through a single-screen form.
  • Multi-Screen Data Search allows you to produce customized time series by households and their characteristics. Data can be exported into Excel through a multi-screen form.

To use these tools, select one and click through the options. The search tool provides the selected data and the corresponding series ID. You can generate time series by entering the Series ID into the Series Report.

Not all tabular data are in the CE LABSTAT database. For example, the CE LABSTAT database only contains annual data, so Midyear tables cannot be replicated using the database. Similarly, the CE LABSTAT database does not include data on variances or by metropolitan statistical areas. You can find the additional tabulations on the CE tables page.
