Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of increased farm income and income distribution on expenditure pattern of cultivators in Haryana and also to estimate the effect of price and family size on the expenditure pattern of the cultivators, for the period of 1968 to 1992. The major source of data for the study has been the ''Family budgets of cultivators in Haryana'' published annually by Economic and Statistical Organization, Planning Dept., Government of Haryana. In order to estimate the relationships Almost Ideal Demand System proposed by Deaton and Mullebauer (1980) has been used. It has been shown that the fragmentation of families leads to wastage of resources.
