Abstract

The aim of this dissertation is to examine, model and estimate the importance of

demand factors that shape the diet quality choices of the U.S. households. In particular,

I focus on the low-income households because these households are consuming

food of lower diet quality. Understanding whether and how income is restricting these

households in their food choices is important for the policy makers. First, I analyze

the importance of the food access in explaining the dierence in diet quality across

income. Second, I study the importance of price eects of high nutritional quality

food for the low-income households. Third, I analyze the dierences in preferences

across the U.S. cities.
