Statistics Finland compiles the official statistics concerning whole Finland.
Their main page: http://www.tilastokeskus.fi/index_en.html

Income and Consumption (includes household expenditures): http://www.tilastokeskus.fi/tk/tp/tasku/taskue_tulot.html

Housing (includes average rents of rented dwellings): http://www.tilastokeskus.fi/tk/tp/tasku/taskue_asuminen.html

Prices and costs (includes selected food prices):
http://www.tilastokeskus.fi/tk/tp/tasku/taskue_hinnat.html

Finland in figures, all kinds of statistics about everyday life in Finland: http://www.tilastokeskus.fi/tk/tp/tasku/suomilukuina_en.html

The pages above give information on the whole Finland. Statistics concerning Helsinki are compiled by Tietokeskus (http://www.hel.fi/tietokeskus).

General statistics-based information on Helsinki: http://www.hel.fi/tietokeskus/en/tilastoja/seutu.htm

More specific report on the economy of households in Helsinki, not quite what you asked for, though:
http://www.hel.fi/tietokeskus/en/tutkimuksia/resea999.html

Specific statistics on expenditure per household are not to be found on the Internet, but in Helsinki City Library you can get the figures in a printed book: Helsingin kaupungin tilastollinen vuosikirja 2000 = Statistical yearbook of the City of Helsinki 2000, p. 240. If you are not in Helsinki, you can obtain the figures as an inter-library loan, so please turn to your local library.
