|dc.description.abstract||Whereas a large number of empirical studies have been devoted to analysing consumerdemand for specific products, much less attention has been paid to the household?s demandfor product variety (the number of different products consumed in a specific time period).This paper analyses consumer demand for food variety in Germany. The econometric analysisof 4.632 household in 1995 suggests, that variety increases with income and the number ofchildren aged between 6 and 18 years and is significantly higher if the family lives in largercities in East-Germany, and the housekeeping person is not additionally working full-time. Asingle male household consumes a significantly smaller number of different food products.The significant (and positive) impact of household income on food variety is in line with thehypothesis that consumption evolves along a hierarchical order as income increases.||en_US|
