Seasonality in Consumption: An Economic Analysis of the Alimentary Patterns in Greece (1957 -2005)

Ioannis Sotiropoulos, Georgios Georgakopoulos, Konstantina Pendaraki


This paper attempts to explore financial expenditure of households in post-war Greece (1957-2005) in our
endeavour to describe annual seasonality patterns of food consumption. Agricultural/industrial,
animal/plant-based, in-house/away-from-home alimentation features are examined in an effort to understand and
qualitatively categorise the evolution and progression of food consumption over time. Our analysis is performed
presenting descriptive statistics and data gathered from the “Household Budget Surveys” (H.B.S.) of the
National Statistical Service of Greece (E.S.Y.E).
