Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults, ICECREMSIZ reports the respondent's average portion size (small, medium, or large) when eating ice cream. A medium portion was defined as one medium scoop. Researchers may wish to use ICECREMSIZ in conjunction with ICECREAMNO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate ice cream and ICECREAMTP, which reports the corresponding time unit.
ICECREMSIZ 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.
