Codes and Frequencies
For a selected group of sample adults, LIQUORSIZ indicates the size of each serving of liquor the respondent drank during the past year. Response options included "small", "medium", and "large".
LIQUORSIZ was part of a series of variables initiated in 1987 dealing with food and food knowledge in the Cancer epidemiology supplement. 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.
- 1987: Half of sample persons age 18+ (excluded from CACT supplement) who drank liquor during the past year.
- 1992: Half of sample persons age 18+ in quarters 1 and 2 and two weeks of quarter 3 (excluded from CACT supplement) who drank liquor during the past year.
