For sample adults, MACTP reports the time unit (day, week, month, or year) that corresponds with the frequency with which the respondent reported eating macaroni and cheese or other mixed dishes with cheese. MACTP should be used in conjunction with MACNO, which reports the corresponding frequency stated by the respondent. For information about the portion size, see MACSIZ.

MACTP 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.


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.
