Abraham, Sidney; And Others
This report presents data on dietary intake obtained to assess the nutritional status of the United States population, aged 1-74 years. Age, sex, race, and income level differences in dietary intake are among the variables considered. Data are analyzed for certain groups at high risk of malnutrition (e.g., the poor, preschool children, women of childbearing ages, and the elderly). Appendices discuss survey and statistical methodology, define demographic and socioeconomic terms used in the survey, and list the food sources of calories and nutrients and standards for dietary intakes.
