  • Description:
    To enhance the understanding of fish and shellfish buying patterns in the United States, this study investigated the nature and magnitude of the influence of price, household income, and socioeconomic and demographic variates on aggregate seafood expenditure. The source of data was the 1972-1974 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Expenditure Diary Survey. The empirical analysis of aggregate fish and shellfish expenditure was based on information from 9,066 households. The list of socioeconomic and demographic characteristics hypothesized to affect fish and shellfish expenditure included: (1) geographic region, (2) population density (urbanization), (3) household size, (4) race of household head, (5) marital status of household head, (6) education of household head, (7) occupation of household head, (8) tenure class (homeownership) of household head, (9) seasonality, and (10) employment status of the female household head. Geographic region, population density, race, marital status, the price of fish and shellfish, household size, and household income were statistically significant factors of household expenditure on fish and shellfish. However, education, occupation, and tenure class of the household head as well as seasonality and employment status of the female household head were not statistically significant factors of household expenditure on fish and shellfish. Given information on price, household income, household size, and socioeconomic and demographic variates, profiles were constructed to examine household expenditure behavior.
