Household spending rose a real 1.1% in November from a year earlier, with a rebound from the previous year's drop due to a tax hike outweighing a decrease amid a resurgence of coronavirus infections, government data showed Friday.

Average spending by households with two or more people in real terms was ¥278,718, up for the second straight month, according to the Internal Affairs and Communications Ministry. It increased 1.9% in October.
