Price volatility of food staples. The case of millet in Niger

This article aims to examine dependence between producer and consumer prices for millet markets in Niger. Links between prices considered are assessed by cointegration analysis and statistical copula methods. Results indicate a positive link between producer and consumer prices, which is stronger the closer the markets are. Evidence of asymmetric price behavior is also found.
