Tonga Household Income and Expenditure Survey 2015-2016

Tonga’s 2015/2016 HIES was implemented from October 2015 to October 2016 and this survey report provides an overview of the survey, a summary of the aggregated income and expenditure estimates and a brief population and income and expenditure distribution analysis. This report is the first analytical output of the survey, however there’s a multitude of opportunity for more in-depth thematic analysis and other uses of HIES data for which the survey was implemented, including:

i. deriving expenditure weights for the revision of the consumer price index (CPI);
ii. supplementing the data available for use in compiling official estimates of various components in the System of National Accounts (NA); and
iii. gathering information on poverty lines and the incidence of poverty in Tonga.

This summary provides an overview of the survey sample and a summary of HH expenditure, income and the population structure and distribution.
