Price elasticity estimates from family expenditure data: an application of the extended linear expenditure system



Price elasticity estimates from family expenditure data: an application of the extended linear expenditure system



Canadian Journal of Agricultural Economics 27(1): 41-52



Price elasticity estimates reported are derived from a conventional Engel curve analysis of the 1972 Canadian Urban Family Expenditure Survey. The approach used to estimate the price elasticities follows from a specialization of the extended linear expenditure system (ELES) by Powell and Howe. By treating the Engel curves as reduced form equations for the ELES, the survey data can be utilized to simultaneously estimate price and income elasticities of demand.
