Definition: Individual consumption expenditure by NPISHs
Purchasing power parities
The actual and imputed final consumption expenditure incurred by NPISHs (Non-profit institutions serving households) on individual goods and services. In practice, most final consumption expenditures of NPISHs are individual in nature and so, for simplicity, all final consumption expenditures of NPISHs are treated by convention as individual.
