INTERREGIONAL VARIATION IN FOOD EXPENDITURE PATTERNS OF LOW-INCOME HOUSEHOLDS

Household food consumptionpatterns differ significantly among geographic regions in the United States. The variations in low-income household food expenditures are identified for major food categories in nine census regions. A multiple regression model is developed to estimate changes in food expenditure patterns associated with changes in income for low-income households. Our results have important implications for Federal programs such as the Food Stamp Program.
