CNMap

CNMap is a collection of food and nutrition indicators obtained from a variety of sources. Information on nutrient intakes, healthy eating patterns, physical activity and
Body weight come from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Continuing Survey of Food Intakes by Individuals (CSFII) 1994-96, 1998. The percentages of individuals meeting the Dietary Reference Intakes1 (DRI) are based on day-1 nutrient intakes from the CSFII and DRI values established during the period from the mid 1990's to 2002. Pyramid Servings groups (fruit, grain, vegetable, dairy, and meat) estimates are for individuals 2 years old and over who meet the minimum daily servings recommendations.

All weight estimates are based on body mass index (BMI) values computed from self-reported height and weight obtained from CSFII participants. Individuals over 20 years old with BMI values of 25 and over are in the overweight and unhealthy weight categories; those with BMI values of less than 19 are in the unhealthy weight class. Individuals 20 years old and under with BMI values of 24.5 and over are in the overweight and unhealthy weight categories; those with BMI values of less than 13.5 are in the unhealthy weight class.

Not all states were covered in the CSFII. The Community Nutrition Research Group has assigned these states the values of the estimates for theregion(Northeast, South, Midwest, and West) in which they reside.

Information onFarmers Marketswas obtained from the Agricultural Marketing Service web site. Food Stamp participation rate is a combination of information from the USDA Food and Nutrition Service food stampparticipation totalsand the Bureau of the Census household totals.

Hunger information comes from theFood Security Supplementof the Current Population Survey conducted by the Bureau of the Census for the USDA Economic Research Service.

Demographic information was obtained from the Bureau of the CensusQuickfactsweb site.Income and povertyvalues are model-based estimates created by the Bureau of the Census.

1 The Dietary Reference Intakes used to determine percentages are based on recommended dietary allowances (RDA) or adequate intakes (AI).
