For sample adults, RICETP reports the time unit (day, week, month, or year) that corresponds with the frequency with which the respondent reported eating rice. RICETP should be used in conjunction with RICENO, which reports the corresponding frequency stated by the respondent. For information about the portion size, see RICESIZ.

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.

RICETP 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.
