Utilizing data collected form 105 households in Sonora, Mexico, Baer combines ethnographic research with quantative analyses of income, diet and nutritional status to examine the dietary patterns of residents. The author has used the analytical concept of "available income" in order to explore a variety of social and cultural factors that affect food expenditure and consumption. Home production of food and the extent to which women are employed outside the home are two of the variables discussed that influence available income. But even among groups with similar available incomes, variables of ethnicity, prestige, nutritional knowledge and the desire for consumer goods all come into play in the calculations.
