Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults, RICESIZ reports the respondent's average portion size (small, medium, or large) when eating rice in a specified time period. A medium portion was defined as ½ cup. Researchers may wish to use RICESIZ in conjunction with RICENO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate rice, and RICETP, which reports the corresponding time unit.
RICESIZ 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.
