For sample adults, FRYCHKYR is a recoded variable that reports how many times per year the respondent ate fried chicken. This recoded variable is based on the responses to FRYCHKNO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate chicken, and FRYCHKTP, which reports the corresponding time unit. For information about the portion size, see FRYCHKSIZ.

FRYCHKYR 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.


Apart from changes in the universe, there are no comparability issues. 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.
