The expenditure elasticities estimates in post-war recorded a decrease for all food groups compared to the pre-war period, except for the expenditure elasticity of fish, which increased from -0.3 as an inferior good in pre-war to 0.5 as a necessary good after the war. And the income elasticity of cereals recorded decrease from 0.96 to 0.3. Finally, the expenditure elasticity on (group of cigarettes, tobacco, and qat), as a non-food group achieved a decrease from 1.5 as a luxury good before war to 0.9 as almost a normal good post the war period.
