A Dynamic Analysis of Food Demand Patterns and Habit Effects: panel Evidence from Rural Households in Ethiopia

Abstract: 

The impacts of habit formation, economic and demographic variables on demand for ten food commodities –teff, barely, wheat, maize, sorghum, pulses & oilseeds, root crops, fruits & vegetables, animal products and “other foods”— are estimated using both dynamic quadratic AIDS and a generalized dynamic AIDS models. Using the Ethiopia Rural Household Survey (ERHS) panel in three waves, results show strong habit effects in food consumption demand patterns in rural Ethiopia. The result also reveals both economic and demographic variables have significant impacts on food demand patterns in rural areas.
