For sample adults and sample children in 2007 who had taken vitamins or minerals during the past 30 days (VITMO), VITMOSUPNO reports how many of the 20 specified vitamin and mineral supplements the sample person had taken during the past month.

Interviewers asked whether sample adults and sample children had taken any vitamins or minerals in the past month. Respondents who had done so then indicated which of 20 vitamins and minerals listed on a flash card had been taken by sample persons. See VITMOCALC for the full list of vitamins/minerals and corresponding variables.

VITMOSUPNO is a summary variable that reports a sample person's number of "Yes" responses (ranging from 1 to 20) to the series of variables inquiring about a person's use of particular vitamin/mineral supplements. Multi-vitamin or multi-mineral pills are counted as 1 vitamin/mineral in VITMOSUPNO.

For more information on the full range of variables related to vitamins and minerals, including definitions, see VITMO.


VITMOSUPNO is only available for 2007 and is fully comparable between sample adults and sample children.
