Share of US Consumption Components


Personal Consumption Expenditures can be viewed as expenditures by the household sector. Services are overwhelming the largest category. Durable goods are clearly the smallest.

The share equals the size of the component divided by the size of the total.

The 2nd Quarter 2007 was the last quarter prior to the economic downturn.
