Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults, PEANUBSIZ reports the respondent's average portion size (small, medium, or large) when having peanuts or peanut butter in a specified time period. A medium portion was defined as two tablespoons. Researchers may wish to use PEANUBSIZ in conjunction with PEANUBNO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent had peanuts or peanut butter, and PEANUBTP, which reports the corresponding time unit.
PEANUBSIZ 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.
