  • Description:
    Descriptive summary of current nutrition monitoring activities sponsored by various Federal agencies. Arranged under six sections, according to the categorized monitoring activities. Entries give such information as agency, target population, and control variables.

    Nutrition monitoring in the United States is a complex system of coordinated activities that provides information about the dietary, nutritional, and related health status of Americans; the relationships between diet and health; and the factors affecting dietary and nutritional status. Nutrition monitoring and surveillance data are used for Federal policymaking including food safety, food fortification, food labeling, dietary guidance, tracking progress toward nutrition and health objectives, and setting nutrition research priorities. Surveys, surveillance systems, and other monitoring activities comprise the measurement component areas of the National Nutrition Monitoring and Related Research Program (NNMRRP), which was strengthened with the passage of the National Nutrition Monitoring and Related Research Act of 1990.

    The Directory of Federal and State Nutrition Monitoring Activities is part of an effort to improve dissemination of nutrition monitoring data. The first Directory was published in 1989, the second one in 1992, and the third one in 1998. The 2000 Directory represents the fourth update in this series.
