For sample adults, SAUSNUM reports the number of sausages eaten each time the respondent ate sausage. Researchers may wish to use SAUSNUM in conjunction with SAUSNO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate sausage and SAUSTP, which reports the corresponding time unit.

In 2010, the variable REDMEATMNO was introduced, which reports how many times the respondent ate red meat, such as beef, pork, ham, or sausage.

SAUSNUM 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.


  • 1987: Half of sample persons age 18+ (excluded from CACT supplement) who ate sausage during the past year.
  • 1992: Half of sample persons age 18+ in quarters 1 and 2 and 2 weeks of quarter 3 (excluded from CACT supplement) who ate sausage during the past year.
