U.S. Census Bureauto monitor households
YOUNGSTOWN -- U.S. Census Bureau representatives will be visiting 15,000 households nationwide this month for the bureau's Consumer Expenditure Survey.
Selected households will receive a letter from the bureau beforehand.
The survey tracks how much Americans spend on items such as groceries and health care. Half the households will be interviewed every three months for the next year; the other half will record their expenditures over a two-week period.
Economists use the data to update the Consumer Price Index, which measures the nation's inflation rate.
