Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults who made lasting and major changes in what they eat or drink for health reasons, FOODLESS2 reports the second food item the respondent mentioned eating less of as part of these changes. Lasting and major changes were specified to include changes to prevent a disease or changes made after being diagnosed as having a disease, but does not include temporary changes made during a limited period.
FOODLESS2 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.
