Characterizing food usage by demographic variables

Journal of the American Dietetic Association 81(6): 661-673
Characterizing food usage by demographic variables
On the basis of an analysis of three-day food records, food comsumption by major segments of the U.S. population was examined for 65 food groups and subgroups. This study indicates that demographic factors, particularly age, race, and region, can affect both the percentage of persons using certain foods and the mean frequency of their use. Both the similarities and the differences on these parameters are of interest when food usage is examined by demographic variables.
