    The consumer price index in Ireland is based on household budget inquiries carried out in urban areas only. Such an index is very useful for many purposes but it would be desirable to have in addition a rural price index together with an overall index reflecting expenditure patterns in both rural and urban areas. In order to establish the weighting system for such indices, it would be necessary to carry out rural household budget inquiries on a scale not so far attempted in this country. Such surveys could of course be used to obtain information on many facets of rural life other than family expenditure. In particular, they could be used to obtain income data for rural households including information on non-farm income and its sources.
