For sample adults, BISCYR is a recoded variable that reports how many times per year the respondent consumed biscuits or muffins. This recoded variable is based on the responses to BISCNO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate biscuits or muffins, and BISCTP, which reports the corresponding time unit. For information about the portion size, see BISCSIZ.
BISCYR 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.
