  • Description:
    The National Report on Biochemical Indicators of Diet and Nutrition in the U.S. Population is a series of publications that provide ongoing assessment of the U.S. population's nutrition status by measuring blood and urine levels of diet-and-nutrition biochemical indicators. This is the second report in this series. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Division of Laboratory Sciences at the National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH/DLS) conducted the laboratory analyses for 58 biochemical indicators presented in this 2012 report. CDC measured these indicators in specimens from a representative sample of the U.S. population during all or part of the four-year period from 2003 through 2006. Where available, data are also presented on changes of biochemical indicator levels over time since 1999. Similarly, data are also presented on the prevalence of low or high biochemical indicator levels during 2003-2006, and on changes in the prevalence over time since 1999. The first report of this series was published in July 2008 and it contains information on 27 biochemical indicators from all or part of the four-year period from 1999 through 2002. Both reports can be accessed online: http://www.cdc.gov/nutritionreport. The specimens for the Second Nutrition Report were collected by CDC's National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), which is conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). NHANES is a series of surveys designed to collect data on the health and nutrition status of the U.S. population. This report covers one important facet in the assessment of nutrition status of the U.S. population: biochemical measurements. Other nutrition-related aspects from NHANES, such as dietary intake, supplement usage, hematologic measurements, and anthropometric body measurements are not covered.
