Comments: This dataset was donated to DPLS by a library patron. NOTE: The datafile for record type 30 (individual food reported) is missing from this set. Original data received on diskette as SPSSPC+ system files; these files should be transferred in binary mode; DBMSCOPY+ was used to convert system files into SPSS portable/export files (transfer in ASCII mode); and ASCII character fixed field data files with accompanying dictionary files. When using ASCII files, both '.ft' and '.dct' files are needed to locate variables because DBMSCOPY+ padded each variable to a fixed length of 12 characters. 6/08 This study can be purchased at NTIS as item PB93-500411.

Abstract: This dataset contains information from two surveys conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The 1989 Continuing Survey of Food Intakes by Individuals (CSFII) includes information on food and nutrient intakes by 5,204 individuals of all ages surveyed in the 48 conterminous states who provided at least one day of data. The 1989 Diet and Health Knowledge Survey (DHKS) includes information on diet, health, and food safety issues from 1,906 individuals identified as main meal planner/preparers in the 1989 CSFII. The dataset is hierarchical with the following record types: household level record containing general household data; person level record containing nonintake data for each person in a household; food level record with data for each individual food reported (NOTE: DPLS does not have data for this record type); person level record containing daily food group intakes per person per day; person level record containing daily nutrient intakes per person per day; household level record that contains the DHKS data.
