A NONPARAMETRIC ANALYSIS OF CONSUMER PREFERENCES FOR FRESH MEAT PRODUCTS AgEcon
Moen, Daniel S.; Capps, Oral, Jr..
Nonparametric statistical methods (the Kruskal-Wallis test and Dunn's multiple comparison procedure) were used to analyze consumer preferences for fresh meat products (chicken, beef steak, beef roast, fish, ground beef, pork, turkey, and lamb) in a retail food chain in Houston. On a pairwise basis, significant differences in ratings were evident for the majority of the fresh meat products in terms of frequency of purchase as well as taste and quality. In particular, chicken was not only the most frequently purchased fresh meat product but also compared favorably to all meat items in terms of taste and quality.

A Note on Business Cycle Non-Linearity in U. S. Consumption AgEcon
Cook, Steven.
The recently examined durability-asymmetry hypothesis of Cook (1999) is re-evaluated using the diagnostic tests of time deformation proposed by Stock (1987, 1988). An application of these tests to disaggregated data on U.S. consumers’ expenditure provides further support for this hypothesis, with the findings given an economic interpretation in terms of variables evolving at differing speeds over different phases of the business cycle. Additionally, building upon the studies of Cover (1992), Karras (1996) and Rhee and Rich (1995), recent research by Arden et al. (2000) has shown the relaxation of the assumptions of linearity and symmetry typically employed in macroeconometric models to result in monetary policy having clear asymmetric effects on the...

A Penny Saved: Prices and the Timing of Paycheck Receipt AgEcon
Beatty, Timothy K.M..
This paper explores a puzzling empirical regularity: households pay less for foods as the time since receipt of their last paycheck increases. I leverage randomization with regard to paycheck timing to causally identify the effect of time since paycheck receipt on prices. Estimates of the decline in prices range between 5% and 6% percent, over the course of a month. I investigate several potential explanations for this behavior, including credit constraints and stockpiling. I find evidence that the effect is driven by low-income households and exacerbated by stockpiling behavior.

A Personal Touch: Text Messaging for Loan Repayment AgEcon
Morten, Melanie; Karlan, Dean S.; Zinman, Jonathan.
We worked with two microlenders to test impacts of randomly assigned reminders for loan repayments in the “text messaging capital of the world”. We do not find strong evidence that loss versus gain framing or messaging timing matter. Messages only robustly improve repayment when they include the loan officer’s name. This effect holds for clients serviced by the loan officer previously but not for first-time borrowers. Taken together, the results highlight the potential and limits of communications technology for mitigating moral hazard, and suggest that personal obligation/reciprocity between borrowers and bank employees can be harnessed to help overcome market failures.

A plot of one's own: gender relations and irrigated land allocation policies in Burkina Faso AgEcon
Zwarteveen, Margreet Z..
Discusses the potential opportunities and pitfalls of introducing market forces into the process of water allocation. Proposes several preconditions for beneficial privatization of water allocation and argues for a more sophisticated form of analysis than that generally allowed by proponents of basic needs or of free market approaches.

A PROBIT MODEL ANALYSIS OF FACTORS AFFECTING CONSUMPTION OF FRESH SWEET CORN IN MAJOR U.S. MARKETS AgEcon
Morgan, Kimberly L.; Briggs, Amanda C.; Degner, Robert L.; Stevens, Thomas J., III.
In an effort to more effectively utilize its resources to promote fresh sweet corn, the Fresh Supersweet Corn Council contracted with the Florida Agricultural Market Research Center (FAMRC) of the University of Florida to conduct a comprehensive consumer survey. The consumer survey was designed to investigate consumer preferences, attitudes, and behavior regarding the purchase and consumption of fresh sweet corn. A total of 1,031 consumer telephone interviews were conducted in Dallas, Atlanta, Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia between September 7 and November 3, 2001. Respondents' revealed very limited consumption in the winter, spring, and fall seasons and consumers' perceptions that sweet corn is not available in these seasons. Probit models are estimated...

A Profile of Farmers' Market Consumers and the Perceived Advantages of Produce Sold at Farmers' Markets AgEcon
Wolf, Marianne McGarry; Spittler, Arianne; Ahern, James.
This study examines responses of 336 produce consumers in San Luis Obispo County, California, to compare the profile of farmers’' market shoppers to those who do not shop at farmers'’ markets. The characteristics of produce sold in farmers’' markets are compared to those sold at supermarkets to determine why consumers shop in farmers’' markets. This examination of the demographic profile of farmers’' market produce consumers indicates that they are more likely to be female, married, and have completed post graduate work. The age levels, income levels, and employment status are similar between farmers'’ market shoppers and farmers'’ market non-shoppers. Farmers'’ market shoppers indicate that cooking and family meals are important to them. Consumers...

A PROFILE OF THE GENERATION X WINE CONSUMER IN CALIFORNIA AgEcon
Wolf, Marianne McGarry; McVey, Colin M..
This research shows that the wine market in California is segmented by age. Wine consumption behavior differs between the generation X consumer and those that are not generation X. They purchase different types of wine at different locations. There are different attitudes toward wine between the two groups. Generation X consumers are more concerned with the quality and image attributes of wine.

A PROFILE OF THE WINE CONSUMER IN CALIFORNIA AgEcon
Wolf, Marianne McGarry.
This research shows that the wine market in the United States is segmented. The demographics and wine consumption behavior of the California wine consumer differs from the national consumer. The data examined here show that the California wine consumer can be further segmented into heavy spender and lighter spender groups based on demographics and wine consumption behavior. The existence of multiple segments in the wine market indicates that separately targeted marketing campaigns may be more effective than broad marketing campaigns for wine.

A RE-EXAMINATION OF EXCESS SENSITIVITY PUZZLE WHEN CONSUMERS FORECAST THE INCOME PROCESS AgEcon
Banerjee, Anurag N.; Basu, Parantap.
In this paper, we address the issue of excess sensitivity/ smoothness of consumption purely from an estimation and forecasting point of view. Suppose the agent estimates the income process using the past income data and obtains best linear unbiased forecasts of future income and then she computes permanent income using these forecasts. How far will she be if she misspecies the income process as a trend stationary process when truly it is diference stationary? Using the recently developed sensitivity indices for forecasts, we argue that for a plausible characterization of the deterministic trend term in the income process, the mispecication bias for estimate of marginal propensity to consume is of second order importance.

A SEGMENTATION ANALYSIS OF U.S. GROCERY STORE SHOPPERS AgEcon
Mangaraj, Sandeep; Senauer, Benjamin.
Cluster analysis was used to conduct a segmentation analysis of U.S. supermarket shoppers. This study is based on the responses of a sample of 1,000 shoppers concerning the importance of 21 store characteristics in selecting their primary grocery store for the Food Marketing Institute's 2000 consumer trends survey. Stores must satisfy the attributes important to all consumers in order to be successful. In order of importance, the four top characteristics are a clean/neat store, high quality produce, high quality meats and courteous, friendly employees. The three key supermarket shopper segments identified are time-pressed convenience seekers, sophisticates, and middle Americans. In order to cater to a particular consumer niche, a store must better...

A Semiparametric Approach to Estimate Engel curves using the US Micro Data AgEcon
Zapata, Hector O.; Sulgham, Anil K..
The study estimates Engel curves using cross-section data from the 2003 US consumer expenditure survey (CES). We focus on finding adequate specification for modeling the demographic characteristics using parametric, nonparametric, and semiparametric techniques. The empirical results indicate parametric Working-Leser or Piglog specification was sufficient for most budget shares except for transportation where semiparametric specification had support.

A Structural Econometric Model of Consumer Demand at Pick-Your-Own Fruit Operations AgEcon
Carpio, Carlos E.; Wohlgenant, Michael K..
This paper develops a fully structural econometric consumer demand model for goods which have time and monetary costs, and where time spent obtaining the goods also enters into the utility function. The model is used to analyze customers'’ decision to buy pick-your-own versus pre-harvested fruit at North Carolina pick-your-own fruit operations. The empirical application distinguishes the double effect of time as a resource constraint and also providing utility. Elasticity estimates show that strawberries sold at pick-your-own operations are price elastic, with pick-your-own fruit being less price elastic than pre-harvested fruit.

A STUDY OF CONSUMERS AT A SMALL FARMERS' MARKET IN MAINE: RESULTS FROM A 1995 SURVEY AgEcon
Kezis, Alan S.; Gwebu, Thula; Peavey, Stephanie R.; Cheng, Hsiang-Tai.
This study was based on a survey of customers who shopped at a small farmers' market during the summer/fall market season of 1995. Information from a survey completed by 239 shoppers was used to develop a profile of the primary consumer group, defined as those who shop regularly at the market and spend the most per visit. Comparisons between survey data and census data for the local population showed that primary shoppers at the market had higher education, higher annual household income, tended to be slightly older, and were more likely to be employed women. For the most part, the respondents were loyal, weekly shoppers who patronized the market because of the high quality of the products. Most reported that they were willing to pay more for produce...

A Survey of Greek Agricultural E-Markets AgEcon
Manouselis, Nikos; Konstantas, A.; Palavitsinis, N.; Costopoulou, Constantina; Sideridis, Alexander B..
The role that information technology plays in today’s business activities has led to an increase in firms using and/or deploying e-markets online. This development undoubtedly affects the agri-food sector, since a large number of agricultural firms are demonstrating or are expected to demonstrate e-commerce activities. This paper aims to provide an overview of the current status of agricultural e-markets in Greece, by presenting results from an analysis of 100 cases. Results indicate that Greek e-markets may still have a rather low degree of sophistication, but they demonstrate a strong B2B orientation, as well as an outreach for international customer bases.

A TARGET CONSUMER PROFILE AND POSITIONING FOR PROMOTION OF A NEW LOCALLY BRANDED BEEF PRODUCT AgEcon
Wolf, Marianne McGarry; Thulin, Andrew J..
This research examines the consumer profile and positioning for a new locally branded beef product. The research involves 413 beef consumers in California. The target consumers for the new locally branded beef product are approximately one-third of beef consumers in the local area. They are older, married, and from higher dual-income households. The target consumers for the new locally branded beef product are likely to have purchased other branded beef products. Approximately one-half of the beef consumers indicated that they make their meat purchase decisions in the store. The characteristics of beef that are important to the consumers when purchasing beef are price, quality, and appearance of the beef. Therefore, competitive pricing, packaging that...

A TARGET CONSUMER PROFILE AND POSITIONING FOR PROMOTION OF THE DIRECT MARKETING OF FRESH PRODUCE: A CASE STUDY AgEcon
Wolf, Marianne McGarry.
A consumer survey was used to identify the proportion of consumers who shop for produce at farmers' markets. A profile of the target market was developed. Characteristics of produce which are most desirable to consumers when making their purchase decision were identified. Consumers' perceptions of the characteristics of produce sold at farmers' markets versus supermarkets were evaluated. The most desirable characteristics of produce which provide farmers' markets produce with a relative advantage over supermarket produce were identified for use in a promotional campaign.
