StatPlanet looks like a Trendalyzer clone; similar categories, with ticking time scale.
It's is a free software that is very easy and intuative. As they say "StatPlanet can be downloaded as a stand-alone application and used as free educational software. It comes with up-to-date world statistics in the categories shown below."

Categories I found interesting: the 2010 report, couples with/without children and spending per age group.
The data comes from "Our data comes from the U.S. government, from anonymous and aggregated spending transactions from Citi, and from third party data providers."
Their philosophy is: "the Bundle philosophy that people can become more aware of their everyday spending and saving choices. And it’s our way of leveling the playing field for people: companies have been paying millions of dollars for this kind of data for years in order to get you to buy more stuff. Now you can see it, too, and it won't cost you anything."
