The purpose of this agreement is to develop a commodity food database, hereinafter the Food Commodity Economic Database (FCED) for What We Eat In America, NHANES 2005-2006. The FCED, an expansion of the Food and Nutrient Database for Dietary Studies 3.0 developed by FSRG to code and process WWEIA, NHANES 2005-2006 dietary data, is designed to convert foods reported in WWEIA, NHANES 2005-2006 to ERS food commodities.
Staff at the Food Surveys Research Group, ARS, will work with a senior economist at the Food Economic Division, ERS, to plan, develop, and document the development of FCED and collaborate with ERS in the preparation of manuscripts on common areas of interest to ARS and ERS. The 2005-2006 FCED will be applied to 2005-2006 WWEIA, NHANES dietary recall data to estimate the amount of food commodities consumed by Americans. Various USDA reports will be prepared by staff at ERS and ARS. The FCED database will be made publicly available on the Web.
