Table 14. Estimated Regression Coefficients for Sum of Foods Predicting Square Root Cup Equivalents of Dairy, by Age Group & Sex

For MyPyramid cup equivalents of dairy, estimation of b0 and b1, the model is:

E ([Dairy]1/2) = b0+ b1([NFG1P1+ NFG2P2+ ... + NFG4P4] 1/2)

For MyPyramid cup equivalents of dairy, for each age group and sex, the estimates of the parameters are:

Parameter Boys/Men Girls/Women
Children/Adolescents
Intercept (b0) 0.267324 0.302148
b1 0.911968 0.888512
Adults
Intercept (b0) 0.354193 0.388273
b1 0.889021 0.832711
