Codes and Frequencies
For all persons, GETMEALYR reports if anyone in the family received meals that were prepared outside the home and brought in on a fairly regular basis in the past 12 months.
The Field Representative's manual specifies that these questions concern meals provided for any reason, not just health-related reasons. "Fairly regular basis" is defined by the respondent. Restaurant carry-out food is not included, regardless of the reason or frequency.
For more information and related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
