We would like to check whether the salt used in your household is iodized. May I see a sample of the salt used to cook the main meal eaten by members of your household last night?
not iodized o PPm
less than 15 PPM
15 or more
NA or no salt in home
salt not tested
Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
This item is used to record the type of salt used to prepare the family's main meal the day before the questionnaire is administered, and the outcome of the test for salt iodization. Follow the instructions given in training to test the salt, and circle 1 (not iodized) if the test is negative (0 PPM - parts per million - or no colour). Circle 2 if the test shows less than 15 PPM iodine (weak colour). Circle 3 if the test is positive (15 PPM or more, strong colour). Circle 8 for "not applicable" if there is no salt in the home. Circle 9 if the salt was present, but not tested for any reason.
