Supplementary notes

* The figures show weekly expenditure of households divided into decile groups, ranging from households with the lowest ten percent disposable income up to those with the highest disposable income.
** Figures for the lowest and second decile group have been suppressed by the source because the unweighted sample amounts to less than 10 reporting households.
*** Figures for this income group should be used with extra caution because they are based on fewer than 20 reporting households.
