Documentation for Researchers
The Researcher Web site allows researchers, clinicians, and teachers to register a study, set study parameters, manage study logistics, and obtain dietary analyses. The Web site:
- allows researchers to add their own opening and closing text scripts and study logo for use on the Respondent Web site;
- allows researchers to choose from optional modules to query the location of meals, with whom meals were eaten, television and computer use during meals, and supplement intakes;
- enables researchers to monitor study progress and to obtain a variety of reports, including statistics for complete, incomplete, and upcoming recalls for each participant; and
- produces individual-level nutrient estimates based on the Food and Nutrient Database for Dietary Surveys (FNDDS) and food group estimates based on USDA’s MyPyramid Equivalents Database (MPED). The version of the databases applied depends on the version of ASA24 used by the study (compare ASA24 versions). These data can be analyzed by researchers or used to provide reports to respondents.
Detailed instructions for researchers are available and from the Researcher Web site.
