About this product
- DescriptionFood away from home (FAFH) is an important part of a typical American's diet and continues to increase as a share of the food budget. Rising consumption of a particular kind of FAFHfast foodhas been blamed for American's expanding waistlines and poor diet quality. The study examined in this book uses data from the 2003-11 American Time Use Survey to examine the effects of time-use behaviors, prices, sociodemographic characteristics, labor force participation, and prices on fast-food purchasing patterns in the United States before and after the Great Recession. Because fast food accounts for a large share of U.S. food expenditures and calorie consumption, a better understanding of the motivation behind trends in fast-food purchasing behaviors may help inform policies designed to improve the diet quality of Americans. This research complements previous studies that used food expenditure and food intake data (but t time-use data) to analyse the effects of demographic characteristics, prices, and income on fast-food purchases and consumption. In addition, this book discusses consumer spending at full-service and fast food restaurants, and the affect this has on the foodservice industry.
