What is the average propensity to consume?

APS is a ratio of savings to total income. It is the percentage of total income that is put into savings (instead of consumption).

Formula

Average Propensity to Save = Savings / Total Income

Example

Savings is $300,000 and total income is $600,000.

APS = $300,000 / $600,000 = 0.500

Therefore, average propensity to save is 0.500.
