Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults, FRIESSIZ reports the respondent's average portion size (small, medium, or large) when eating fried potatoes (including French fries, home fries, or hash brown potatoes). A medium portion was defined as ¾ cup. Researchers may wish to use FRIESSIZ in conjunction with FRIESPNO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate fried potatoes and FRIESPTP, which reports the corresponding time unit.
FRIESSIZ 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.
