Rethinking Demand for A Varied Diet: The Role of Convenience Foods in Diversity Indices

The objective of this study is to develop a group based food diversity index that classifies convenience foods based on the basic food items they contain. This group based food diversity index is then applied to examine the relationship between the demand for food diversity, food expenditures and household characteristics. Further, findings using the new group based food diversity measure are compared to those obtained using a product code based food diversity index. Results are forthcoming.
