The third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III, ICPSR 2231), conducted in 1988-1994, was designed to obtain nationally representative information on the health and nutritional status of the population of the United States through interviews and direct physical examinations. This release, Series II, No. 3A, contains data obtained from a second exam of selected survey participants who had had a primary exam. This release does not replace any previous NHANES III data releases. The second exam sample consists of seven separate data files. The Combination Foods file contains information on food weight, nutrient data, and descriptions about combination foods. The Total Nutrient Intake file records respondent intake of foods and beverages in a 24-hour time period. The Examination file consists of a comprehensive physical/dental examination. The Individual Foods file lists the food records and component food records for single and multi-component combination foods. The Laboratory file contains data collected through whole blood, serum, plasma, and urine specimens collected from respondents. The Second Laboratory file contains blood and urine assessments by specimen type and age group. The Variable Ingredient file reports data pertaining to the variable ingredients for many recipe foods in the Individual Foods file.
