Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults, SUGARTP reports the time unit (day, week, month, or year) that corresponds with the frequency with which the respondent reported having sugar in coffee or tea, or on cereal. SUGARTP should be used in conjunction with SUGARNO, which reports the corresponding frequency stated by the respondent. For information about the portion size, see SUGARSIZ.
SUGARTP 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.
