Food Prices Review Board—Ottawa survey
This file contains data collected for an experimental study to determine how the availability of comparative price information affects consumers when they are making food purchasing decisions. The file consists of data collected from May 1974 to February 1975 and relates to the weekly retail prices in dollars and cents for 65 food items in 26 stores in the Ottawa-Hull area. These datasets have been converted from their legacy file structures and encoding schemes so they can be used by contemporary computers that are based upon the ASCII character-encoding scheme. Each dataset will require specialized software such as a statistical tool, to interpret and analyze the content in each file. The attached codebook describes the file’s structure and defines the variables contained in each field. Each code book is a compilation of the summary description of the dataset as provided by the creating department. As such, it is available in English only.
