Abstract

Consumption and use patterns for selected dairy products and their substitutes were described and related to certain socioeconomic variables for consumers living in the Salt Lake City metropolitan area. The data for this thesis were gathered by means of a survey conducted from April 1967 through June 1967. Salt Lake City households were large consumers of fluid milk, evaporated milk, butter, margarine, fruit juice and fruitade when compared to the western region and the nation. By calculating the income elasticities for each of the four types of products, all were shown to be superior products with the exception of canned milk.
