Life Cycle Consumption Of Food At Home: Facts From French Purchase Data

No 260920, 2017 International Congress, August 28-September 1, 2017, Parma, Italy from European Association of Agricultural Economists

Abstract: Over the next few decades, the share of the elderly population in France will increase steadily. There is concern that aging households cannot maintain the pre-retirement level of consumption. Although there is empirical evidence that the expenditure on non-durables decreases as households age, there does not seem to be any evidence whether the quantity, consumed decreases in France. Our results indicate that although food prices and expenditures decline, the home food consumption does not. In fact it increases in all age groups after the late forties.
