PRESS RELEASE: American Samoa 2015 HIES

The 2015 Household Income and Expenditure Survey (HIES) is the fifth survey of the American Samoa Expenditure Series since the first one in 1982. The HIES collected information on demographic, social and economic characteristics of the resident population, as well as expenditures and family spending patterns drawn from a 20 percent systematic sample of households in American Samoa. The main objectives of the survey are:

  • To provide new expenditure weights and a “market basket of goods and services,” for the revision of the American Samoa Consumer Price Index.
  • To supplement personal consumption expenditure in compilation of National Accounts and Gross Domestic Products.
  • To obtain selective eating habits and nutritional intakes of residents.
  • The tabulation report presents summaries of key findings as well as detailed tables of subject matter crosstabulations useful for planning and policy decisions.

The survey was funded with a technical assistance grant from the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Office of Insular Affairs (OIA). OIA funded simultaneous grants to American Samoa, CNMI, and the Virgin Islands for the 2015 HIES surveys as they did for the 1995 and 2005 rounds.

Many individuals and organizations provided assistance for the successful completion of the HIES. I extend my deepest appreciation to the Department of Interior, Office of Insular Affairs for funding this project. And to Dr. Michael J. Levin for data processing utilizing the CSPro software; Mr. Brian Hannon, a Wasington DC based Price Statistics Consultant who worked on the Consumer Price Index Revision, and all those involved in the field enumeration and processing of the HIES survey. I want to pay special tribute to former Chief Statistician Mr. Etuale Tuileta for leading this work and the Department of Commerce staff for their unwavering support.

Fa’afetai fa’apitoa mo aiga uma o Amerika Samoa na filifilia mo lenei galuega. O lo outou sao ua mafai ai ona tu’ufa’atasi ni fa’amaumauga taua mo le fuafuaina o atina’e ma le tamaoaiga, aua se manuia o Amerika Samoa ma ona tagata.

Signed,

Director Keniseli F. Lafaele
