Role of ethnicity in consumption of meat products
Previous studies on the demand for meat products have not received much attention on the role of ethnicity on consumption. Using data from the US Consumer Expenditure Survey (CES) and LinQuad demand systems, this study investigates the impact of ethnicity on the demand for meat products in the United States. Results indicate that ethnicity plays a significant role in the consumption of meat products. Specifically, results show that, compared to Hispanics, African American households consume significantly more bacon, pork chops and chicken meats. In general, White households consume lower quantities of meat products, compared to Hispanics, specifically chicken and seafood products.
