Gallup US Consumer Spending Measure
Gallup's self-reported Consumer Spending measure is based on a question that Gallup tracks daily, asking a nationally representative sample of about 500 adults, aged 18 and older, and reports monthly based on approximately 14,000 interviews. Gallup asks Americans each day to estimate the amount of money they spent "yesterday," excluding the purchase of a home, an automobile or normal household bills. The survey is conducted with respondents contacted on landlines and cellphones.
