The 1998 Household Income and Expenditures Survey (HIES) was undertaken to develop the marketbasket used for the Current Price Index (CPI).  The revised CPI will assist the government of the Federated States of Micronesia in measuring inflation.  The measurement of inflation is important for both the public and private sectors -- to determine wage increases, to see the relationship between income and expenditures, and so forth.

 

This HIES is the first to be developed, collected, and tabulated in the Federated States of Micronesia.  We took care in developing the questionnaire and materials to take into account traditional as well as Western life styles, including segments on subsistence and traditional expenditures, such as for betel nut.  The data  allow for comparisons between types of income and expenditures, as well as detail on demographic, social, economic, and housing chracteristics.  These data permit comparisons over time, particularly with the 1994 FSM Census and the 1997 FSM Labor Force Survey.

 

The 1998 HIES data were collected by enumerators in each of the four States -- Yap, Chuuk, Pohnpei, and Kosrae.  Rosina Edwin was survey coordinator, under the general direction of Timothy Semuda, Chief, Statistics Division.   Perry Petrus is in charge of developing and maintaining the CPI, so was involved in all aspects of this project.  Many other permanent staff at the National and State levels made significant contributions to the timely completion of this project.

 

Tilson Kephas, along with Itorie Amond and Maggie Asugar, developed the data dictionary and screens for keying the data.  The data were keyed using the IMPS CENTRY package.  The staff used the IMPS CONCOR program to edit the data; this program was a modification of a prototype program developed by Michael Stroot and Michael Levin at the International Programs Center, U.S. Bureau of the Census, and modified by Kephas.  Kephas did the programming for all population, housing, and expenditures tables, using table specifications developed by Levin.  Kephas and Levin also developed the appendices presented in this report.

 

The Office of Insular Affairs (OIA), U.S. Department of the Interior, funded this project.  The FSM  government made many in-kind contributions, including payment of National and State Office of Planning and Statistics Staff, as well as contributions by many other FSM National and State agencies.  We appreciate all of this assistance.
