    • Analysis is based on retail egg price data in CA versus US for 2014 and 2015.
    • Egg prices increased in CA by $1.05 per dozen (37.8%) and increased $0.56 (27.4% nation wide) ***Avian influenza outbreak was also going on at this time which could be the cause for the US increase. CA still had an increase of $0.49 per dozen (with influenza outbreak price taken out of consideration) which is a 18% increase.
    • Price per person, per year ends up with $14 more spent than before Prop 2.
