The formula for calculating income elasticity of demand:E = change in quantity demandedchange in incomeThe degree to which the quantity demanded for good changes in response to a change in income depends on whether the good is a necessity or a luxury as describe below:i. Normal GoodsNormal goods have a positive income elasticity of demand (between 0 and +1) so as income rises more is demanded at each price level.
