Türkiye'de Gelir Gruplarına Göre Gıda Talebi (The food demand by income groups in Turkey)

Seda Şengül

Abstract


The paper describes a two stage model of households’ food demand by income groups in Turkey. Demand for the food aggregate is represented by a Working-Leser type single equation model while demand for eight dictict food types is modelled in a complete demand system using the LA/AIDS functional form. Estimation is based on household budget survey data for 1994. The results indicate that the medium, high and the highest income households’ demands are responsive to prices, income and socio-demographic variables. Demand by the low and lowest income households were responsive to income and prices only.
