About the data
In this household each adult can consume goods and services worth about 31 US dollars each month. This consumption includes the things they buy as well as the things they produce for themselves (if any). We estimated this amount based on the incomes the family reported. We scaled down the reported values by about 30% to take into account some additional cost of living factors (extra costs which we assumed were not included in the official "PPP-rate" that we use to transfer local currencies into dollars).
