Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults, MACSIZ reports the respondent's average portion size (small, medium, or large) when eating macaroni and cheese or other mixed dishes with cheese in a specified time period. A medium portion was defined as one cup. Researchers may wish to use MACSIZ in conjunction with MACNO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate macaroni and cheese or other mixed dishes with cheese, and MACTP, which reports the corresponding time unit.
MACSIZ 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.
