Effects of household size and composition on consumption in rural households in Matabeleland South, Zimbabwe

This study, using a survey of rural households in Zimbabwe in 1990 j91, focuses on the effects of changing household composition on patterns of expenditure and provides estimates of the 'cost of a child' as well as of family members in other age groups. In addition to age differences in the size and direction of responses to changing family composition, the paper highlights significant differences across product groups. These effects are more muted in larger households.
