Description

For sample adults, ORANGSIZ reports the respondent's average portion size (small, medium, or large) when eating oranges. A medium portion was defined as one medium orange. Researchers may wish to use ORANGSIZ in conjunction with ORANGNO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate oranges, and ORANGTP, which reports the corresponding time unit.

ORANGSIZ is part of a series of variables related to food, food knowledge, and cancer. For related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.

Comparability

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.
