Description

For sample adults, EATOUT reports the number of meals the person eats out in a typical week. This includes meals from restaurants, cafeterias, or fast food places.

EATOUT 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 or see DIETCHANGEV.

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.
