The Northern Ireland Family Expenditure Survey (NIFES) was conducted in Northern Ireland from 1967-1998, and was the counterpart to the Family Expenditure Survey (FES), which was conducted annually in Great Britain from 1961-2001. It aimed to provide reliable data on expenditure and income in relation to household characteristics. From 1968 the Great Britain FES incorporated a sample drawn from the NIFES to become the UK FES. The FES was replaced in 2001 by the Expenditure and Food Survey (EFS), covering the whole of the UK. The EFS subsequently became the Living Costs and Food Survey (LCF) from 2008.
