Household Consumption, Credit Constraints and Arrears

Authors: Brian O'Connell

Research Areas: Macroeconomics

This research project analyses consumption in Irish households. Particular focus is given to the question of which households are credit constrained, and the role of unemployment, arrears and negative equity. On the question of arrears, EU data are examined to determine what households typically go into arrears and how recovery affects arrears numbers.
