Abstract

The United States Department of Agriculture has long published statistics on the farmer's share of the consumer's food dollar based on a "market-basket" series. Questions frequently arise as to the interpretation of these statistics. This article describes the meaning of this series and considers two other series that can be used both to measure the part of consumers' food expenditures going to farmers and to provide other useful measurements in analyzing trends in marketing services and charges.
