    Abstract

    This paper presents the results of estimating a set of consumer demand equations for the Queensland economy. The model adopted is the Almost Ideal Demand System of Deaton and Muellbauer. The model is estimated for four commodity groups: Food, Clothing, Household equipment and operation and Other Expenditure excluding housing. The model is estimated using a static representation and using two dynamic variants. After discussion of the results, the estimated expenditure and own price elasticities are compared to those estimated in previous studies.
