For sample adults, MACYR is a recoded variable that reports how many times per year the respondent ate macaroni and cheese or other mixed dishes with cheese. This recoded variable is based on the responses to 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. For information about the portion size, see MACSIZ.
MACYR 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.
