Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults, VEGSOUSIZ reports the respondent's average portion size (small, medium, or large) when eating vegetable soup, vegetable beef, minestrone, or tomato soup in a specified time period. Respondents were instructed not to include other types of soup. A medium portion was defined as one medium bowl. Researchers may wish to use VEGSOUSIZ in conjunction with VEGSOUNO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate vegetable soup, vegetable beef, minestrone, or tomato soup, and VEGSOUTP, which reports the corresponding time unit.
VEGSOUSIZ 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.
