  • ISSN : 1810-9799



The purpose of this article is to briefly look at the total annual income and expenditure of households by decile together with the spending on commodity groups as a percentage of total annual expenditure. This is done for both South Africa and the Western Cape in 2008. Inflation adjustments are made to 2005 income and expenditure figures to achieve 2008 values. A closer inspection of expenditure is provided to analyse expenditure patterns of South African and Western Cape citizens. This will present a background to policymakers for effective policy decisions that can have a beneficiary effect on all citizens.
