Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults, SAUSTP reports the time unit (day, week, month, or year) that corresponds with the frequency with which the respondent reported eating sausage. SAUSTP should be used in conjunction with SAUSNO, which reports the corresponding frequency stated by the respondent. For information about the portion size, see SAUSNUM.
In 2010, the variable REDMEATMNO was introduced, which reports how many times the respondent ate red meat, such as beef, pork, ham, or sausage.
SAUSTP 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.
