Price elasticities for disaggregated expenditures

Abstract : The relation between price elasticities computed at different levels of aggregation is a prominent question in the evaluation of price effects in the empirical literature on households' consumption, production or international trade. We propose to model it under a strong separability assumption in order to estimate price elasticities at a disaggregated level when only price aggregates are available in the dataset. The estimation of price elasticities for aggregates consumptions uses an original domestic production model combining monetary expenditures and time uses for aggregate activities in order to calculate full prices of these aggregates. The method is applied for food expenditures on surveys of two different countries, France and Burkina Faso.
