Frequency drinking 100 percent fruit juice, past month: Number of units


JUICEMNO is a 3-digit-numeric variable.

00: Never
95: 95+
996: Not in Universe
997: Unknown-refused
998: Unknown-not ascertained
999: Unknown-don't know


For sample adults 18 and over, JUICEMNO reports how many times the respondent consumed juice in a specified time period. This only includes 100% fruit juice such as orange, mango, apple, grape or pineapple; it does not include fruit drinks such as Kool-Aid, lemonade, cranberry juice cocktail, Hi-C or Tang. JUICEMNO should be used in conjunction with JUICEMTP, which reports the corresponding time unit stated by the respondent.

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


In 2005, the format of separate frequency and time units was not used; instead respondents' answers were organized into pre-defined categories. Researchers interested in using all years of available data may consider seeing the 2005 variable JUICEMO, and modifying JUICEMNO and JUICEMTP to correspond to the pre-defined categories from 2005.

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.
