Examining Food Consumption In Japan Under Life-Cycle Hypothesis: Implication From Cross-Sectional Data
This study estimates a cross-sectional model through a theoretically consistent Almost Ideal Demand System (AIDS) to examine the economic and demographic determinants of food consumption patterns in Japan over life-cycle periods. Results show key factors that explain such behavior, including family size, number of children, lifestyle and health concern.
