Estimation of Demand Parameters under Consumer Budgeting: An Application to Argentina

Alain de Janvry (), J. Bieri and A. Nuñez

American Journal of Agricultural Economics, 1972, vol. 54, issue 3, 422-430

Abstract: This study assumes that consumer expenditures occur in a stepwise fashion in which income is fist allocated to budget categories and then to optimum quantities within each category. With this assumption, a model was developed to estimate the price and icome elasticities of demand of all items in one budget category—like food—and the cross-price elasticities of these items with all others. The approach permits one to specify the changes in expenditure levels on budget categories from cross-section information and the flexibility of money. The model was empirically applied to Argentine consumption data.
