Supplementary notes

Gallup's Consumer Spending measure is calculated from responses to a basic question asking Americans each day to estimate the amount of money they spent "yesterday," excluding the purchase of a home or an automobile, or normal household bills. The result is a real-time indicator of discretionary retail spending, fluctuations in which are sensitive to shifts in the economic environment.
Data over time has been taken from the monthly gallup consumer spending updates.
