GREENSTP
Frequency eating mustard/turnip greens, past year: Time period

Codes and Frequencies



Description

For sample adults ages 18 and older, GREENSTP reports the time unit (i.e., day, week, month, or year), which corresponds with the frequency with which the respondent reported eating mustard greens, turnip greens, or collards in the past year. GREENSTP should be used in conjunction with GREENSNO, which reports the corresponding frequency stated by the respondent. Researchers may also want to use GREENSSIZ, which reports the corresponding portion size.

GREENSTP is part of a series of variables initiated in 1987 related to food, food knowledge, and cancer. For related variables, please use the IHIS search function and drop-down menus.

Comparability

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.
