Commodity and Outlet Survey

The COS is a nationwide survey of households conducted for the purpose of gathering data on commodities that a family purchased/consumed/availed of most of the time and the type of outlets where these commodities were purchased/availed of within the country. The results of the survey will provide the basis for the identification of the market basket at different income levels, i.e. upper 70% and bottom 30% which will be used in the computation of the 2006-based CPI for the different income groups. It will also serve as the basis for the identification of type of outlets for the regular monthly price survey.
