Description: Once again we take our annual look at what Americans are eating, where they are purchasing their food, how much they are spending, and related topics of interest to farmers, the food industry, policymakers, and consumers. In 1996, the share of food expenditures spent away from home fell slightly to 45.8 percent from 46 percent in 1995. Spending at restaurants, fast-food outlets, and other eating places rose 2.8 percent in 1996, smaller than the 3.7-percent increase in food spending at supermarkets, specialty foodstores, and other retail outlets.

Summary: Published from 1991-2002, this magazine contains nontechnical, general interest articles and historical data on food supply, food demand, food prices, and food spending. The articles report on ERS analyses and insights on a wide variety of topics related to the U.S. food marketing system, including food consumption, food product development, international food trade, food safety, and food-related policies and programs.
