"The eigth edition of Who's Buying for Pets is based on unpublished data collected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics' 2008Consumer Expenditure Survey. It examines how much Americans spend on pets by the demographics that count: age, income, high-income households, household type, race and Hispanic origin, region of residence, and education. To round out the spending picture, it also presents who-are-the-best-customers analyses of the data, showing the demographics of spending at a glance. The categories examined in this report are pet food; pet purchase, supplies, and medicine; pet services (e.g., grooming and dog walking); and veterinary services."
