Welcome to the State of California 

2001 California Dietary Practices Survey (CDPS) Data Tables

The California Dietary Practices Surveys (CDPS) is the most extensive dietary and physical activity assessment of adults 18 years and older in the state of California. CDPS was designed in 1989, and is administered biennially in odd years. This survey is housed in the California Department of Public Health Cancer Prevention and Nutrition Section (CPNS). CDPS was designed to monitor dietary trends, especially fruit and vegetable consumption, among California adults for evaluating their progress toward meeting the 2000 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the Healthy People 2010 objectives, and the1990 California Daily Food Guide recommendations.

The 2001 CDPS collected data on consumption of fruits and vegetables, whole grain breads, high fiber cereal, beans, dairy foods, and high fat, low nutrient foods.  Also, information was obtained on related knowledge and behaviors, out-of-home eating practices, food security, and use of Food Stamps. The 2001 CDPS data tables highlight eleven areas related to dietary practices and physical activity: (1) Healthy Eating Practices, (2) Fruits and Vegetables, (3) Whole Grains, High Fiber, and, Beans, (4) Milk and Animal Protein-Foods, (5) High Fat and High Sugar Foods, (6) Eating Out, (7) Physical Activity, (8) Body Weight, (9) Food Shopping, (10) Knowledge and Attitudes, (11) Food Stamps and Food Security.  Interpretations of these tables are those of the author and do not necessarily represent those of the California Department of Public Health or the Public Health Institute.
