Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults, SALSAMO is reports how many times per month the respondent ate salsa.
Other survey years report food frequency in a standardized format, recording the number of times a food was consumed and the corresponding time unit. Food frequencies in 2005 are instead classified into pre-defined frequency categories. Researchers interested in using all years of available data may consider modifying SALSAMNO and SALSAMTP to correspond to the pre-defined categories used in SALSAMO.
SALSAMO 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.
