This volume presents straightforward, innovative research on the estimation of demand systems and the measurement of consumer preferences.

This volume also offers state of the art research in demand analysis, using modern econometric tools to analyze consumer behavior and estimate demand relationships for well known demand systems. This book will be aimed at a broad audience of economists and other social scientists; including generalists, graduate students, private sector economists and others.
