For sample adults, BACSGMNO reports how many times per day, week, or month the respondent usually ate bacon or sausage, not including low-fat, light, turkey, or vegetarian substitute varieties. This variable should be used in conjunction with BACSGMTP, which lists corresponding the time unit referenced.

In 2010, two relevant variables were introduced. REDMEATMNO reports how many times the respondent ate red meat, such as beef, pork, ham, or sausage. PROCMEATMNO reports how many times the respondent ate processed meats, such as bacon, lunch meat, or hot dogs.

BACSGMNO is part of a series of variables initiated in 1987 related to food, food knowledge, and cancer. For related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
