Abstract: The paper deals with the approach of multi-source data use to evaluate the indicators of standard of living of households including high income households which are usually associated with higher unit non-response rate in sample surveys. Two approaches that are based on complex use of several sources of information are presented. The first approach implies the formation of cumulative microdata set which is based on the results of Household Budget Survey for few periods. Such approach serves to assess the social and demographic profile of high income households. It is shown that the second approach presupposes the formation of a corrected microdata set with the use of the results of Household Budget Survey and additional source of information either as the data of System of National Accounts or the results of Salary Survey or the data of Fiscal Office. With the second approach it is possible to obtain more accurate evaluations of expenditures and incomes of households and of high income ones as well.
Key words: multi-source data approach, data of Household Budget Survey, data of System of National Accounts, data of Salary Survey, fiscal data, high income households.
