Abstract

This paper discusses consumption patterns in Brazil. Most of the results are based on the ENDEF National Household Expenditure Survey 1974/75.

It provides estimates of expenditure shares and elasticities for seven broad expenditure classes both at the national and regional level and by income class. Food consumption is then analysed under seventeen separate commodity headings. This is also done at the regional level and by income class.

This analysis also provides the basis for the consumption module of the Brazil general equilibrium planning model -- BPM.
