Personal consumption expenditures (PCE) is the primary measure of consumer spending on goods and services in the U.S. economy. 1 It accounts for about two-thirds of domestic final spending, and thus it is the primary engine that drives future economic growth. PCE shows how much of the income earned by households is being spent on current consumption as opposed to how much is being saved for future consumption. PCE also provides a comprehensive measure of types of goods and services that are purchased by households. Thus, for example, it shows the portion of spending that is accounted for by discretionary items, such as motor vehicles, or the adjustments that consumers make to changes in prices, such as a sharp run-up in gasoline prices.

Latest Updates

Personal spending in the US increased 0.8% month-over-month in October of 2022, following a 0.6% rise in September and matching market forecasts helped by a tight labour market and high savings, despite rising prices and borrowing costs. Within goods, the leading contributors were new motor vehicles, namely light trucks, and gasoline. Within services, the largest positive contributor was spending on food services and accommodations, which was partly offset by a decrease in financial services and insurance, namely financial service charges, fees, and commissions.
