Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults, TOMATSIZ reports the respondent's average portion size (small, medium, or large) when eating tomatoes, including in salads, in a specified time period. A medium portion was defined as one tomato. Researchers may wish to use TOMATSIZ in conjunction with TOMATNO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate tomatoes, and TOMATTP, which reports the corresponding time unit.
TOMATSIZ 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.
