    Studies on inequality so far have focused on income inequality. But manifestations of inequality could be different between income and consumption, and consumption could have a more direct bearing on the social well-being and happiness of members of a society. And consumption inequality could be more significant as an economic indicator of social justice and distribution. Unlike prior studies, this study aims to review inequality from consumption side, not income. It will go a step beyond simply measuring inequality based on the volume of consumption, will break down the consumption items to analyze households’ consumption and spending behavior and degree of inequality. Findings and implications of this study can be summed up as follows. (For the full text of the English summary, please download the “Download 2 English_Abstract”.)
