Technical Abstract: Extensive evidence has demonstrated that 24-hour dietary recalls (24HDRs) provide high-quality dietary intake data with minimal bias, making them the preferred tool for monitoring the diets of populations and, increasingly, for studying diet and disease associations. Traditional 24HDRs, however, are expensive and impractical for large-scale research because they rely on trained interviewers, and multiple administrations are needed to estimate usual intakes. To address these challenges, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), in collaboration with the research firm Westat (Rockville, MD) and with the support of other institutes and offices at the National Institutes of Health, developed the Automated Self-Administered 24-hour dietary recall (ASA24). ASA24 is a public-access, freely available, web-based tool for researchers, clinicians, and educators that is modeled on the Automated Multiple Pass Method (AMPM).
