Abstract: We analyse demand for food away from home (FAFH) in Slovakia by double-hurdle model from the Household Budget Survey data covering period 2004-2010. Results reveal an increasing trend in food away from home expenditure between the two periods with a considerable heterogeneity among different household types. The estimated income elasticities of FAFH in Slovakia also differ among different household groups. For example, single person households perceive out of home eating as a necessity. On the other hand, households consisting of multiple adults without children, single parent with children, and traditional families with parents and children perceive eating out of home as a luxury. FAFH in Slovakia differs substantially between regions as well as between the annual seasons. Slovak households appear to have higher demand for FAFH in western regions and during the winter season. An important feature of the applied household model is to measure the effect of wife’s opportunity costs regarding the food preparation at home. Results reveal the fact that households with employed wife have significantly higher expenditure on FAFH than unemployed (housekeeping) wife.
