Abstract
We randomly assigned eight different consumption surveys to obtain evidence on the nature of measurement errors in estimates of household consumption. Regressions using data from more error-prone designs are compared with results from a gold standard survey. Measurement errors appear to have a mean-reverting negative correlation with true consumption, especially for food and especially for rural households.
