Example text

A particular advantage of this type of multicountry study is that it permits observation of locational differences in average income levels. Differences in the years of the survey and the difficulty of finding appropriate exchange rates for comparison of the West African franc zone (CFA) countries to Zambia in the periods considered complicate comparisons of income levels across countries. A rough idea is given by the last column of Table 4, which lists average sample total expenditures per capita divided by the average local consumer price of the major cereal crop in the year of survey.

35 Investment (I) and government (G) demands for nontradables are assumed to be exogenously given as Ian, Imn, Gan, and Gmn. Including household, intermediate, investment, and government demands, total outputs of farm and nonfarm nontradables are then A = Han + Pan + Ian + Gan, and (13) M = Hmn + Pmn + Imn + Gmn. (14) To complete the model it is necessary to define household income Y. Assuming that value added (vj) is a constant share of gross output in each sector and that all value added accrues to households, then Y = vatTat + vmtTmt + vanA + vmnM, (15) where vj = the proportion of value added to gross output from sector j, where j = at, an, mt, and mn.

Infrastructure and regional characteristics in much of Africa are such that a significant range of goods and services fall within nontradables. Household budget surveys across Africa consistently show basic foods to be the main consumer expenditure item in rural areas. Because the costs of transporting and 20 marketing imports and exports of food are very high, most food consumption is from domestically produced sources. Exports of starchy food staples and livestock products to points outside of Africa are negligible.
