  Note to readers

Household actual final consumption (HAFC) consists of the consumption of goods and services by households. The value of HAFC is given by summing the following three components:

  1. The value of households' expenditures on consumption of goods or services including expenditures on non-market goods or services sold at prices that are not economically significant.
  2. The value of the expenditures incurred by government units on individual consumption of goods or services provided to households as social transfers in kind; and
  3. The value of the expenditures incurred by non-profit institutions serving households on individual consumption of goods or services provided to households as social transfers in kind.
