    Abstract

    O padrão do consumo de alimentos de um indivíduo é resultado, basicamente, de seu poder aquisitivo. Pessoas com baixo poder aquisitivo tende a mostrar maior sensibilidade à variação de preços, onde uma elevação dos preços dos alimentos pode ocasionar alterações em seus hábitos alimentares. Sendo assim, este trabalho tem por objetivo verificar se alterações na renda dos consumidores e preços dos alimentos afetam os hábitos alimentares dos indivíduos de baixa renda. Nestes termos, para poder retratar bem os gastos das famílias tornam-se imprescindíveis revisões no índice de custo de vida e do bem-estar da população. Para tanto, este trabalho utilizará como ferramenta para o cálculo do índice do custo de vida os índices de Laspeyres, calculado por meio de fatores de ponderação determinados a partir de preços e de quantidades da época básica; índice de Paasche, o qual pondera os preços de insumos em duas épocas, inicial e atual , tomando como pesos às quantidades arbitradas para estes insumos na época atual e; índice de Fischer, que medido pela média geométrica dos índices de Laspeyres e Paasche.----------------------------------------------The pattern of the consumption of an individual's foods is resulted, basically, of his/her purchasing power.
