Many of the individual households show no significant trend. So what? It's still a recession.
I guess I just don't see the point of all of this effort.

One denialist theory of global warming suggests that during Soviet times, locals would report temperatures that were below actual in order to increase the amount of support received from central planning. With the collapse of communism, such misreporting was no longer necessary. Were this true, one would expect to see an artifact and one would expect it to be widespread (Gresham's Law).
Perhaps I am misunderstanding, but this study would tend to argue against that theory.
