Final Consumption Expenditure Private final consumption expenditure measures current expenditure by both households and producers of private non-profit services to households (such as charities, clubs and private schools). It includes expenditure on consumer durables such as cars, furniture and appliances; expenditure on consumer semi-durables such as clothing and utensils; expenditure on single-use goods such as food, cigarettes and alcoholic drinks; and expenditure on services such as medical care, recreation, public transport and education. With the inclusion of public consumption expenditure, total final consumption expenditure provides a broad measure of goods and services sold and is hence an indicator of government and consumer demand. In 1996-97, total final consumption expenditure in the Territory is estimated to account for approximately 85% of the Territorys GSP; this is higher than the national economy where total final consumption expenditure contributes about 76% of GDP. In the Territory, public final consumption represents approximately 30% of GSP compared to 17% for the national economy. For 1996-97, real final consumption expenditure in the Territory is estimated to increase at a faster rate than nationally.
