The model was estimated under constraints of demand theory considering factors affecting meat demand such as prices of each product, size of household, residing region of households, education level of hosehold's head and age household's head. From the structural model, Marshalian and Hicksian elasticities for each investigated product were calculated.

Moreover, the reults of the estimated model indicated that beef is a substitution good with fish and chicken but complementaray with sheep-goat.
