Household Finance and Consumption Survey
The Household Finance and Consumption Survey (HFCS) collects data on households’ finances and consumption. The HFCS is the most comprehensive household survey conducted on this subject in Europe. It is the first survey in Austria to allow the entire balance sheet of households to be analyzed according to international standards. In Austria, the OeNB is in charge of implementing the HFCS project in close cooperation with the other euro area national central banks and the ECB.
