This study examines the usefulness of concentration indices in explaining levels in price-cost margins in U.S. food industries. Cross-sectional and pooled regressions indicate that concentration at top-4-firm level, advertising, and advertising squared are the most significant variables in explaining profit. Technology variables are not significant.
