AbstractOBJECTIVE: Data for 5,484 adults (aged 21 years and older) who participated in the 1987-88 Nationwide Food Consumption Survey (NFCS) were used to develop an index of overall dietary intake that related to the major, diet-related, chronic diseases in the United States. The low response rate of the 1987-88 NFCS has raised concerns about potential bias, but this large data set is useful for methodologic studies and research that does not attempt to generalize the results to the US population.
