Then the indicator is indexed with base year 2008.
Households sector includes households, i.e., natural persons or groups of natural persons living together and jointly maintaining themselves (sharing income, expenditures and property) as well as collective households (e.g., residents of social welfare homes, care and education centres, convents, prisons).
