Abstract

A censored Nonlinear QUAIDS model was applied to estimate Mexican meat demand parameters using annual household survey data for six years from 1992 to 2004. Results suggest that in Mexico and throughout the analyzed period, beef and pork meat were luxury items while chicken was a normal good. Small but not significant changes in meat demand parameters were found after NAFTA implementation, suggesting that changes on consumer behavior might take longer periods to be quantifiable.
