Other vegetables include any vegetables not asked about in previous survey questions (previous survey questions asked about carrots or mixed vegetables containing carrots, salad, tomatoes, broccoli, spinach, mustard greens or turnip greens or collards, and coleslaw or cabbage or sauerkraut). The survey question for OTHVEGNO specifically suggests string beans, peas, and corn. OTHVEGNO should be used in conjunction with OTHVEGTP, which reports the corresponding time unit stated by the respondent.
