Description

For sample adults, EGGYR is a recoded variable that reports how many times the respondent consumed eggs in the last year. This recoded variable is based on the responses to EGGNO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate eggs, and EGGTP, which reports the corresponding time unit. For information about the portion size, see EGGNUM.

EGGYR 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.
