Per Capita Food Spending Up 25 Percent in 4 Years

From 1986 to 1990, after-tax household income rose 25 percent. Food spending kept pace, also rising 25 percent. Consequently, the 15-percent share of after- tax household income allocated to food did not change. However, spending for some food categories rose faster than for others. For example, spending for cereals and bakery products jumped 34 percent, while beef and pork spending climbed 15 and 14 percent, respectively. Spending for eggs remained level.
