Food Inflation during the Pandemic: Dissecting Supply Chains and Scanner Data

AAEA annual meeting invited paper session

In the 2022 AAEA Annual Meeting session “Food Inflation during the Pandemic: Dissecting Supply Chains and Scanner Data” authors aim to empirically dissect the sources and effects of ongoing food inflation.

The first paper applies innovative techniques to decompose the various channels of inflation along the agri-food supply chain.  The next paper employs scanner level data to unpack the sources of demand and supply disruption.  The last paper uses scanner level information to develop measures for ‘stock-out’ rates and analyzes its relationship with price changes and sales patterns.

Papers in this session:

This session will take place on August 2, 2022 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm Pacific in the room Platinum 5 at the Marriott Anaheim and virtual.
