HOUSEHOLD DEMAND FOR FRESH POTATOES: A DISAGGREGATED CROSS-SECTIONAL ANALYSIS

A model of household fresh potato consumption incorporating prices, income, family size and other socioeconomic effects is estimated by maximum likelihood Tobit procedures. The effects of truncation bias due to non-purchasing households are evaluated and decompositions of the Tobit elasticities are performed for various sub-groups of the data. The market development implications of this type of disaggregated commodity analysis are explored.
