ERRATA - Consumer Expenditure Surveys Data Quality Profile
December 13, 2023

To users of the 2022 Consumer Expenditure Surveys Annual Data Quality Profile:

  • An error was identified in our data which impacted the estimates of CE Diary placement by mode, presented in Table 7.2 and Chart 7.2 of the annual Data Quality Profile. This problem was caused by an erroneous output value in our internal variable used to measure diary mode at placement, which led to an under-estimation of online diary placement and an over-estimation of values classified as "missing" (by around 6.7 percentage points in 2022q3 and 1.4 percentage points in 2022q4 for each). This error only impacted 2022q3 and 2022q4 and has now been corrected.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us by telephone or email.
