For sample adults, OTHVEGNO reports how many times the respondent consumed other vegetables in a specified time period. 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.

OTHVEGNO 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.


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.
