Abstract: The data is a summary of information obtained in a nationwide survey of U.S. households by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The survey was designed to provide reliable statistics on food consumption by all housekeeping households in the spring of that year and also for major segments of the population such as household grouped by region, urbanization and income. In addition to fairly detailed information on weekly consumption and expenditures for individual food and food groups, the survey also collected information on the socio-economic characteristics of the household.
