Appendix E-2.4: Usual intake distributions, 2007-2010, for pregnant and non-pregnant women in the U.S. ages 19-50 years

The following tables provide separate analysis of pregnant females. This is a relatively small number (n=133) for a national probability sample; therefore, data should be viewed with this consideration.

PLEASE NOTE: The values flagged with an asterisk (*) may be less reliable; interpret with caution.
