This study aims to quantify the relationships between
consumption, prices and incomes in the demand for individual meats
Using consumer demand theory and previous studies of meat
demand, important factors in model specification are considered.
A system of meat demand functions is set up in which
per capita consumption is hypothesised to be:
(1) negatively related to own price;
(2) positively related to price of substitutes; and
(3) positively related to income.
