The heterogeneity of the consumer's preferences over time. A system-wide analysis of discrete panel data

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The paper uses the individual and overall tests of heterogeneity for two complete PIGLOG models of expenditure equations fitted to discrete survey data to investigate a possible change in the consumer's preferences in Australia between 1975/76 and 1983/84. The evidence lends support to the hypothesis of significant behavioral change and also indicates that this change is attributable mainly to the convolution of the consumption patterns in current housing costs and food. © 1986.
