Data that is selected is only of households that have one or two children living in Greater London.

  • wfuel = budget share for fuel expenditure
  • wcloth = budget share for clothing expenditure
  • walc = budget share for alcohol expenditure

  • totexp = total household expenditure (rounded to the nearest 10 UK pounds sterling)
  • income = total net household income (rounded to the nearest 10 UK pounds sterling)
  • age = age of household head
  • nk = number of children

The variables that are used for this regression investigation are the following:

  • wfood as dependent variable (Y)
