Impacts of household composition on convenience and nonconvenience food expenditures in the South ( USA). Academic Article uri icon


  • Age-sex characteristics and size of a household were important in accounting for differences in expenditure behavior found among food groups. The usual preparer of food, race, income, residential location and other socio-demographic attributes were also found to be important explanatory variables. The magnitude of the imputed expenditure at a given age depends upon the scales and the household's socio-demographic characteristics. -from Authors
