The Statistics Office is currently conducting a Household Expenditure Survey (HES) to update the ‘shopping basket’ used to measure the impact of price inflation on Island households.

Statistical Commissioner, Neil Fantom, said:

“We are almost half way through the survey period and currently have over 60 households participating.

“We are extremely grateful to all households that have agreed to participate. This is important for St Helena and will help us understand the impact of price increases on households.”

Households are encouraged to participate in the survey. The data collected will be valuable and will represent the average spending patterns of households so that inflation can be measured as accurately as possible.  All information obtained throughout the survey will be kept strictly confidential.

Participants will also be entered into a raffle and stand a chance of winning some great prizes sponsored by The Rose & Crown, Solomon & Company (St Helena) Plc , Thorpe’s & Sons, the Queen Mary Store, Joshua Brothers Covered Production, Essence Beauty Salon and G-Unique Designs.
