5. Income and Expenditures of Households with Children Studying away from Home

  Average monthly living expenditures of the households with children studying away from home (the households that had member(s) who were not living in the same house for schooling) was 541,143 yen. This was higher than that of the households with children attending college (523,879 yen) from home. Among various living expenditure items, "other living expenditures" including remittance accounted for the largest part at 47.0% of the total expenditures. The ratio of "other living expenditures" was significantly greater as compared to that of the households with children attending college from home (21.0%). Expenses for education including the cost of commuter's pass for attending school and remittance to children studying away from home were 191,890 yen, which was about 1.3 times more than that of the households with children attending college (148,616 yen).
  Both the households with children studying away from home and those with children attending college from home bore the heavy burden of expenses for education. As a result, the average propensity to consume in these households exceeded 100%, the former running a deficit of 13,047 yen and the latter 5,463 yen monthly. In particular, the households with children studying away from home were running a large deficit. Consequently, these households showed a greater net decrease of 9.9% in the ratio of net increase of current assets to disposable income as compared to the households with children attending college (-8.3%).
