Saisonnalité et comportements de consommation

  • GAGEY, F.

[eng] Seasonality and Consumption Behaviour, by François Bourguignon, Frédéric Gagey. This article uses a sample by monthly waves of a survey on household budgets taken in Tunisia in 1980 to determine how seasonal the consumption of different goods can be. Deseasonalization is carried out by using a consumption model common to all the waves of the survey, based on latent variables of "permanent" income and consumption. The correction resulting therefrom for income-elasticities of various goods and for assessing household's welfare is important. [ger] Saisonbedingtheit und Konsumverhalten, von François Bourguignon, Frédéric Gagey. In diesem Artikel werden die Stichproben ausgewertet, die in monatlichen Wellen im Rahmen einer Erhebung über das Budget der privaten Haushalte in Tunesien im Jahre 1980 entnommen wurden, um die Saisonbedingtheit des Konsums verschiedener Güter zu bestimmen. Die Saisonbereinigung erfolgt auf der Grundlage eines Konsummodells, das alien Stichprobenwellen der Erhebung gemeinsam ist und auf latenten Variablen des "permanenten" Einkommens und Konsums basiert. Die Korrektur, die sich für die Einkommenselastizitäten der verschiedenen Güter und für die Bewertung des Wohlstandes der Haushalte ergibt, erweist sich als bedeutend. [spa] Estacionalidad y comportamientos de consumo, por François Bourguignon y Frédéric Gagey. En este artículo se presenta el análisis por períodos mensuales de un estudio relativo al presupuesto de los hogares realizado en 1 980 en Túnez, para determinar la estacionalidad del consumo de diversos bienes. La operación de destacionalización se efectúa en base a un modelo de consumo común para todos los períodos del estudio y se funda en variables latentes de ingreso y de consumo "permanentes". Así se pone de relieve la importancia de la corrección résultante para las elasticidades-ingreso de los diversos bienes y para la apreciaciôn del bienestar de los hogares.
