Quarterly Food-Away-From-Home Prices

Metadata Updated: November 10, 2020

The Quarterly Food-Away-From-Home Prices (QFAFHP) data set provides quarterly prices (not including taxes) for food away from home (FAFH) and alcohol, both at home and away from home. Food away from home is an integral component of the typical American diet and food budget; it also plays a key role in the nutrition and health of Americans. Data on variation in food prices over time and across regions allow researchers to estimate how price changes affect the demand for different products—such as through changes in quantities purchased or expenditures—and, to examine how changes in demand, in turn, affect nutritional and health outcomes.
