This recoded variable is based on the responses to ORANGNO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate oranges, and ORANGTP, which reports the corresponding time unit.

ORANGYR 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.
