Abstract or Summary
  • The passing of the 21st Amendment to the United States Constitution has given to individual states the authority to regulate the sale, distribution and taxation of domestically produced wines, and made the wine trade potentially significant as a means of augmenting state revenues. In the state of Oregon, table wines have been taxed at the rate of 23 cents per gallon irrespective of origin. The objective of this study has been to evaluate the nature and price elasticity of Oregon's wholesale demand for California table wines with a view to determine the effectiveness of the utilization of the tax. The multiple regression analysis technique is the instrument used in this determination. A two part statistical model was employed, but the number of variables used had to be restricted because of certain data limitations. Only 78 percent and 50 percent of variation was explained in the price predicting and demand segments of the model respectively. The results of the statistical analysis indicated a positively sloped demand curve. This rendered any application of the concept of price elasticity of demand as a means of assessing how effective the tax was being used meaningless. In view of this, no recommendations have been made, but the need for further research as more data become available has been pointed out.
