The classification as per that applied by The Nielsen Company is as below: The top class, A, are those households that spend more than IDR 2.5 million for purchasing products and services for everyday needsfood, clothing, cars, rent, personal services, etc. This amount can be . translated into USD 264/month per household at current prices, whereas on purchasing power parity terms, the figure stands at around USD 411/month per household. The middle class are those belonging to B & C categories, namely those households that spend from USD 95 up to and including USD 264 for daily necessities, equivalent to USD 148 - USD 410 on PPP terms per household per month.
