Abstract

In consideration of significant roles played by consumption patterns in understanding the household living standards and indicating the person’s welfare and well-being, this study provides an up to date verification of the impact of demographic factors on consumers’ expenditure patterns in education and health in Tanzania.  Using cross section data from the 2011-2012 household budget survey, the study empirically analyzed this impact. Three considered demographic factors were found to have a significant positive impact on households spending patterns on education and health services. The findings of this study will increase the economic actors’ understanding of the factors determining expenditure patterns and use them to evaluate the consumption and welfare of the population in Tanzania.

Key words: Consumer expenditure, Demographic factors, Cross section data, Health, Education.
