This Section of the report gives the results of a multivariate analysis of the food expenditure data in which net family income and all the household characteristics appear simultaneously. Household characteristics are correlated with one another (for example Income Support or Family Credit receipt is more common in some household composition types than in others). This analysis gives a view of the independent effects of income and each of the household characteristics.
