The most significant indicators of economic development and success include income and consumption. In studying these two indicators, it is important to study them together as income levels determine consumption patterns. Also, these have to be considered on macro as well as on micro levels. The sources, stability, and level of family and individual income, and the stratification, average level, and structures of consumption patterns exhibited should also be examined in a larger context. In examining cross-sectional and longitudinal differentials, a comparative perspective should be employed since economic and social environment changes have corresponding changes in income and consumption patterns. Lastly, understanding the dynamics involves identifying the factors that affect income changes and consumption behavior.

Keywords:   income, consumption, consumption behavior, consumption patterns, income level, differentials, comparative perspective
