The paper is organized in five Sections and three Appendixes. Section I describes the main data source, the Encuestas de Presupuestos Familiares EPF collected by the Instituto Nacionalde Estadística INE in 1973-74, 1980-81 and 1990-91. Measurement problems in relation tohousehold expenditures and incomes are discussed. Section II presents the evolution of consumption expenditure patterns at current prices using two commodity classifications. The first one, fully described in Appendix A, classifies all commodities into 8 goods and 12services. In the second one, used for international comparisons in the DEMPATEM project, expenditures in housing, health, education and durable goods are excluded from total household expenditures. In the Spanish case, the magnitude to be explained by econometricmethods is the change in budget shares of 8 non-durable goods and 9 services between1980-81 and 1990-91. Section III is devoted to the introduction of a number of potentialexplanatory factors, including a demographic and other household characteristics, b incomeor household expenditures effects, c changes in household expenditures inequality, dchanges in relative prices holding quantities demanded constant, referred to as the Baumoleffect as in Blow et al. 2003, and e other changes. Sector IV contains a discussion of theestimated budget elasticities for the 17 commodities in 1980-81 and 1990-91, theexplanation of the increase in the services share over the period, and the comparison of thismagnitude between Spain and the U.S. in 1980 and 1990. Appendix B describes how theBaumol effect has been constructed in the Spanish case, while regression results for the 17Engel curve system are relegated to Appendix C. The final Section V studies the robustnessof the previous results+-
