Description

For sample adults, CHIPSSIZ reports the respondent's average portion size (small, medium, or large) when eating salty snacks like chips or popcorn. A medium portion was defined as 1 handful. Researchers may wish to use CHIPSSIZ in conjunction with CHIPNO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate chips and CHIPTP, which reports the corresponding time unit.

CHIPSSIZ 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.
