Description

USDA, Economic Research Service data reveal a downward trend in U.S. per capita consumption of fluid cow’s milk. Using data collected between 1975 and 2020 through various databases, we identify changes over time in the average amounts of fluid cow’s milk consumed by Americans as a function of changes of population among school-aged children, the average American income, the price per gallon of milk, the average consumer price index for all urban consumers: food and beverages in America, and greenhouse gas emissions in America. Results reveal that Americans are consuming less milk while also reflecting a combination of demographic changes in the U.S. population.
