MARKET-STRUCTURE DETERMINANTS OF NATIONAL BRAND-PRIVATE LABEL PRICE DIFFERENCES OF MANUFACTURED FOOD PRODUCTS

This paper estimates the relationships between market structure and price margins between manufacturers' brands and private-label processed food products. These margins, which are related to the Lerner index of monopoly, are computed from two unusual retail price sources spanning 1975-1980. Market seller concentration and product differentiation are significant determinants of higher price margins.
