Description

For sample adults, CHEESSIZ reports the respondent's average portion size (small, medium, or large) when eating cheese. A medium portion was defined as 2 slices or 2 ounces. Researchers may wish to use CHEESSIZ in conjunction with CHEESENO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate cheese and CHEESETP, which reports the corresponding time units.

CHEESSIZ 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.

Comparability

Changes in survey design (e.g., quarters in which the supplement was collected) may affect raw frequencies, but do not affect comparability of the variable. As always, data users should use the prescribed IHIS weights.
