Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults, REDMEATMO reports the frequency with which the respondent consumed red meat in the past month, week, or day. This includes beef, pork, ham, or sausage. It does not include chicken, turkey, or seafood.
REDMEATMO 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.
Food frequencies in 2005 are classified into pre-defined frequency categories. Researchers interested in using all years of available data may consider modifying REDMEATMNO and REDMEATMTP to correspond to the pre-defined categories used in REDMEATMO.
There are no comparability issues with REDMEATMO when used on its own.
