Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults, CANDYSIZ reports the respondent's average portion size (small, medium, or large) when eating candy. A medium portion was defined as one ounce. Researchers may wish to use CANDYSIZ in conjunction with CANDNO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate candy and CANDTP, which reports the corresponding time unit.
CANDYSIZ 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.
