Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults ages 18 and older who ate carrots or mixed vegetables containing carrots in the past year, CARVEGOSIZ reports the size of the portion consumed (small, medium, or large). A medium portion was defined as ½ cup. Researchers may wish to use CARVEGOSIZ in conjunction with CARVEGONO, which reports the number of units of carrots or mixed vegetables containing carrots consumed and CARVEGOTP, which reports the corresponding time period.
CARVEGOSIZ 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.
