Description

In 1997-98, the Statistics Sweden in co-operation with the National Food Administration (NFA) carried out the second nationwide Swedish dietary survey, Riksmaten. The study was a follow-up of the previous survey (Hulk) carried out in 1989, using similar design and methods. In Riksmaten a representative sample of 2000 households consisted the survey base. In each household one person, aged 18-74 years, was selected to register food intake in a precoded 7-days record book. The participants also filled in a questionnaire with information on body weight, height, education, occupation, physical activity, smoking habits and other lifestyle factors. The sampling design was continuous, i.e. a number of households were invited to participate every second week, thus covering the whole year.

The population in Riksmaten 1997-98 was all registered persons in Sweden between 18-74 years. Subjects were drawn by using systematic sampling from a population register. The selection was based on 2,027 individuals and participation rate comprised 60 %.

The survey contained 32 questions (regarding height, weight,
