Duration took beta carotene, past 12 months: Months

Codes and Frequencies


For sample adults in 2005 who had taken any beta carotene in the past 12 months (VITABETA), VITABETAMO reports the number of months that respondents had taken beta carotene. The survey question did not require that the months be consecutive.

VITABETAMO is one of a series of variables reporting how often and over what period of time respondents had taken beta carotene. For VITABETAMO, interviewers asked respondents directly about the number of months in the past 12 they had taken beta carotene.

For months during which they had taken beta carotene, respondents reported how often they had taken this vitamin (VITABETANO), answering as they desired in terms of days per week or days per month (VITABETATP).
