Description

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.

Beginning in 2010, the variables BRICEMNO and BRICEMTP were introduced, which report the frequency and time unit with which respondents consume brown rice and other whole grains.

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.

Comparability

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.
