For sample adults 18 and over, FRTDRINKMNO reports how many times per month the respondent drank fruit-flavored drinks with sugar (such as Kool-aid, lemonade, cranberry cocktail, or fruit drinks they made at home and added sugar to) in a specified time period. FRTDRINKMNO should be used in conjunction with FRTDRINKMTP, which reports the corresponding time unit stated by the respondent.

FRTDRINKMNO is part of a series of variables initiated in 1987 related to food, food knowledge, and cancer.


The NHIS questionnaire was substantially redesigned in 2019 to introduce a different data collection structure and new content. For more information on changes in terminology, universes, and data collection methods beginning in 2019, please see the user note.
