What is the Eating and Health Module?
The Eating and Health Module (EH Module) is a special supplement to the ATUS that collects data from ATUS respondents on time spent in secondary eating and drinking activities, grocery shopping, meal preparation, and health status. The module was supported by the Economic Research Service of the United States Department of Agriculture and the National Cancer Institute, Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences, Applied Research Program. It was fielded from 2006 to 2008. Because there were a small number of non-respondents to the module, users of data collected through the EH Module should use the weighting variable EHWT to obtain estimates rather than the standard weighting variable WT06. More information about secondary eating and drinking data is available elsewhere.
