For sample adults, OTHFRUSIZ reports the respondent's average portion size (small, medium, or large) when eating other fruits, such as fruit cocktails or berries (i.e., fruit other than oranges, grapefruit, cantaloupe, peaches, apples/applesauce, or bananas). Researchers may wish to use OTHFRUSIZ in conjunction with OTHFRUNO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate other fruit, and OTHFRUTP, which reports the corresponding time units.

OTHFRUSIZ 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.


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.
