Informations rapidesHousehold consumption expenditure on goods dropped sharply in November (–18.9%)Household consumption expenditure on goods - November 2020

In November 2020, household consumption expenditure on goods dropped (–18.9% in volume* after +3.9% in October). This decrease was mainly explained by the implementation of lockdown measures from October 28; it was particularly marked for purchases of manufactured goods (–30.1%) and energy expenditure (–19.2%). Food consumption is also falling (–5.8%).

Household consumption expenditure on goods is thus 17.1% lower than its level in November 2019. This decline is however less severe than the one observed during the 1st lockdown (–32.8% in April 2020, compared to April 2019).
