This page includes links to the 2006 ATUS Eating & Health (EH) Module microdata files and supporting documentation. Researchers can use the EH microdata files to produce their own estimates or do other analyses. Each ZIP file contains a data file along with computer programs that will read the data file into SAS, SPSS, and Stata. The data files are in CSV-format (comma-separated values).
The microdata files do not contain estimates. Tables showing estimates are available from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Economic Research Service, a sponsor of the EH Module.
UPDATED - Several variables were added to the EH Respondent file on February 11, 2009. EREATAD and ERDRKAD are related to secondary eating and secondary drinking. The remaining variables provide respondent-level information about breakfasts and lunches obtained at school. See the ATUS Eating & Health Module Data Dictionary (PDF) for more details.
