Contents:

Author Info

  • Nayga, Rodolfo M., Jr.

Abstract

This study examines the various factors affecting household expenditure on fresh and processed fruit and vegetables in the U.S. using the 1992 Consumer Expenditure Survey. Empirical results suggest that higher income, better educated, larger, and older households spend more on fresh and processed fruit and vegetables than do other households. Seasonal and regional variations are also evident.
