Abstract

The purpose of this survey was (1) to determine the purchasing power and buying habits of a typical student, for himself and others, in a small high school over a specific period of time; (2) to compare the amounts (commodities and services) spent by boys and girls; (3) to determine the relative buying habits and purchasing capacities of different high school classes; (4) to ascertain if students living in-town spend more or less than those living out-of-town; and (5) to compare the purchasing results of this survey with two other selected similar surveys that have been completed on consumer buying.
