For sample adults, EGGTP reports the time unit (day, week, month, or year that corresponds with the frequency with which the respondent reported eating eggs. EGGTP should be used in conjunction with EGGNO, which reports the corresponding frequency stated by the respondent. For information about the portion size, see EGGNUM.

EGGTP 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.


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.
