This study investigates the determinants of household expenditures on poultry and seafood using the 1992 Consumer Expenditure Survey. Higher income and larger households with a better‐educated and older household head spend more on poultry, especially during the fourth quarter of the year, than others. Higher income and north‐eastern households with a non‐white and better‐educated household head spend more on seafood than others. Poultry expenditures are more sensitive to changes in household size than to changes in household income. In contrast, seafood expenditures are more sensitive to changes in household income than to changes in household size.
