This study examined the relationship between the proportion of milk in food stores that is low-fat and consumption of low-fat milk in the community.
Data were gathered from 503 stores across 53 New York State zip codes.
In 19 zip codes, a telephone survey measured household low-fat milk use.
Census data were obtained to examine sociodemographic predictors of the percentage of low-fat milk in stores.
The proportion of low-fat milk m stores was directly related to low-fat milk consumption in house-holds and to the median income and whan level of the zip code.
These results support using food store shelf-space observations to estimate low-fat milk consumption.
