For sample adults, VEGYYR is a recoded variable that reports how many times per year the respondent consumed other vegetables. Other vegetables include any vegetables not asked about in previous survey questions (previous survey questions asked about carrots or mixed vegetables containing carrots, salad, tomatoes, broccoli, spinach, mustard greens or turnip greens or collards, and coleslaw or cabbage or sauerkraut). The survey question for VEGYYR specifically suggests string beans, peas, and corn. This recoded variable is based on the responses to OTHVEGNO, which reports the frequency with which the respondent ate other vegetables, and OTHVEGTP, which reports the corresponding time unit.

VEGYYR is part of a series of variables 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.
