For sample adults 18 and over, SALSAMTP reports the time unit (day, week, or month) that corresponds with the frequency with which the respondent reported eating Mexican-type salsa with tomatoes. SALSAMTP should be used in conjunction with SALSAMNO, which reports the corresponding frequency stated by the respondent.

SALSAMTP is part of a series of variables initiated in 1987 related to food, food knowledge, and cancer.


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 IPUMS NHIS weights.

The NHIS questionnaire was substantially redesigned in 2019 to introduce a different data collection structure and new content. For more information on changes in terminology, universes, and data collection methods beginning in 2019, please see the user note.
