Why was the Total Expenditure (FSTE001) variable in FoodSpend 2019 re-categorized to “Food Purchases (Category Summary)”?

Total Expenditure was moved from the Basics category to the Food Purchases (Category Summary) category to match the category assignments of comparable variables in our HouseholdSpend product. These two datasets are very much related and we felt their variable structure and categorization should also be consistent.
