Abstract :

The present study analyzed the consumption pattern of the households in rural and urban Karnataka based on the secondary data obtained from various rounds of NSSO. There was a significant difference in the consumption expenditure between rural and urban areas. The MPCE on all food items and non-food items showed an increasing trend in both rural and urban areas. The percentage change in expenditure on total food item was higher in urban areas in comparison with rural areas, whereas in total HVAC, the percentage change was higher in rural areas in comparison with urban counterparts. . The share of HVAC found to be increasing over the years in rural Karnataka, while the reverse trend observed in urban area. In rural areas, the high percentage change in the consumption of HVAC’s were contributed by the increased consumption of egg, fish & meat, followed by fruits & nuts, vegetables, milk and milk products.
