Demand for dates in Saudi Arabia: an alternative specification

, : Demand for dates in Saudi Arabia: an alternative specification. Journal of King Saud University, Agricultural Sciences 4(1): 41-59

Few attempts have been made to estimate date demand functions for Saudi Arabia. National income has been used to reflect consumers' income, but this variable is found to be statistically insignificant. This study seeks to estimate a demand function for Saudi Arabia using a different specification with gross domestic product per caput (GDP) and private consumption expenditure per caput as alternative variables representing consumers' income. Results are compared to those of previous studies.
