Review Measure

Essential Measures are only those items that are critical to the collection of the Measure or are necessary for the interpretation of results. Essential Measures are integral to the Measure. Without such information the data collected would be incomplete and/or misleading.
An additional PhenX Measure that the user may find helpful based on the selection of a particular PhenX Measure. Related PhenX Measures can include additional Measures that are needed to calculate a Derived Variable (e.g., Weight and Height are needed to calculate BMI), Measures that are commonly used in presentations and publications to present the value of the chosen Measures (e.g., Height and Weight by Race and Ethnicity), Measures that are conceptually related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Current Educational Attainment is conceptually related to Annual Family Income and Arm Span is conceptually related to Height), Measures that are physiologically and/or biologically related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Stroke and Heart Disease). Related PhenX Measures are suggestions only.
The Collections are an alternative to the research domains for browsing the PhenX Measures. Measures that are related by a specific topic are grouped together.

Measure: Total Dietary Intake   #051200


A measure to assess the foods and beverages consumed throughout the previous day (from midnight to midnight), the previous 24 hours (starting at time of login), or in real time (for one or multiple days).


The 24-hour recall has long been regarded as the optimal methodology for collecting total dietary intake because it provides the highest quality and least biased dietary data for a single day. This method allows collection of detailed intake and portion sizes. Because the data collection occurs after consumption, this method does not affect an individual’s food choices on a given day.

Food records collected in real time can be used to effect change in intakes in dietary interventions; because participants know they are being observed, they tend to be compliant while reporting intakes.
