Changing Patterns of Alcohol Consumption in Rural China: Implications for the Grain Section



This paper applies a demand model to examine alcohol consumption in rural China. Its objective is to investigate alcohol consumption patterns and their determinants in rural households. The empirical analysis is based on survey data of 1000 rural households located in twenty counties within five provinces of China. The main issues considered include the effects of household income and demographic characteristics such as age, education, household size, location and occupation, on alcohol consumption.
