CREAMNO should be used in conjunction with CREAMTP, which reports the corresponding time unit stated by the respondent. For information about the portion size, see CREAMSIZ.


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 IPUMS NHIS weights.
