Two groups of households will be surveyed for their expenditure habits over the next month.

The surveys will be conducted for each group starting from Nov 26 and Dec 10, respectively. Both runs will be conducted over two weeks.

These will cover households in areas like Bedok, Bukit Batok, Bukit Merah and Bukit Panjang,

The two survey runs are part of a year-long Household Expenditure Survey started by the Department of Statistics (DOS) in October. This will last until next September 2013 and cover 11,000 households split into 26 groups in all.
