Cholesterol Information and Egg Consumption in the U.S.: A Nonnormal and Heteroscedastic Double Hurdle Model
Previous studies suggest that the diffusion of cholesterol information is a major reason for the continuing decline in US per capita egg consumption. This study examines the effects of cholesterol information and demographic variables on egg consumption by applying a non-normal and heteroscedastic double-hurdle model and using data from the 1989-91 Continuing Survey of Food Intakes by Individuals (CSFII). Results show that cholesterol information is a deterrent in decisions about whether to consume eggs and how much to consume. The significant demographic variables include urbanisation, region, age, sex, race, ethnicity, and education. Copyright 1996 by Oxford University Press.
