Commodity Consumption by Population Characteristics

Overview

Note: ERS's Commodity Consumption by Population Characteristics data series is discontinued. The data will not be updated.

ERS tracks the supply of commodities available for consumption in the United States and examines consumer food preferences by age, income, region, race, place where food is eaten, and other characteristics. USDA's Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and ERS developed the Food Intakes Converted to Retail Commodities Databases (FICRCD) to provide commodity content for food intake data as recorded in national dietary surveys. 

Building on the FICRCD, ERS has combined 1999-2000 and 2001-2002 data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) to report commodity consumption by household income, age and gender, body weight status, race and ethnicity, and education attainment as well as by the location where foods were eaten. The results are presented in 2 series:

  • food availability (FADS)--retail weight in pounds per year
  • food intakes (FICRCD)--retail weight in grams per day
