A-14Hea!th, science THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER Wednesday, September 11, 1991 Food survey flawed by few responses KNIGHT NEWS SERVICE WASHINGTON The latest survey of what Americans eat was so badly bungled federal agencies may not have the data they need to regulate everything from school lunches and food stamps to food labels and pesticide exposures, a new congressional report says. The 1987-88 Nationwide Food Consumption study, conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), did not interview enough people, its design was flawed and it lacked adequate qual ity controls, according to a report by the General Accounting Office. The flawed survey, for which National Analysts of Philadelphia was paid $6.2 million, could present a problem for federal agencies, the food industry, nutritionists and scientists. All of them rely on the survey, conducted every 10 years, for up-to-date numbers on who is eating what. . For instance, the Environmental Protection Agency uses the survey to find out how much of a particular fruit or vegetable Americans eat when setting its rules on safe levels of pesticide residues. The USDA uses data on consumption and income to decide how much and which foods to provide through the Food Stamp and school lunch programs. And the Food and Drug Administration uses information on how much Americans eat to figure out the "average serving size" on a food label. Only 34 of the sample group of 6,000 households of all incomes and 3,600 low-income households responded to the survey.
