Comparison of water expenditures with other items in the 2016 France household budget

This statistic illustrates the estimate made by the French of their water expenditures compared to the other items of expenditure of their household in 2016. We learn that nearly half of the respondents considered that their expenses of telephony were lower than those for the water. In contrast, about two-thirds of those surveyed felt that electricity spending was higher than water-related expenditures.
