Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults, BISCTP reports the time unit (day, week, month, or year) that corresponds with the frequency with which the respondent reported eating biscuits or muffins. BISCTP should be used in conjunction with BISCNO, which reports the corresponding frequency stated by the respondent. For information about the portion size, see BISCSIZ.
BISCTP 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.
