  1. Self-administered food frequency questionnaire : the effect of different designs on food and nutrient intake estimates.

    Article - En anglais


    Our objective was to determine the possible influence that different designs of a food frequency questionnaire might have on food, energy and nutrient intake estimates.


    A population-based survey included 6783 women, 40-70 years old, living in central Sweden.

    Using a factorial study design, we compared eight different types of questionnaire covering combinations of three factors :

    • increasing/decreasing frequency categories ;

    • addition of portion sizes ;

    • and addition of non-dietary questions.

    All questionnaires included the same list of 60 food items.

    One of the eight questionnaires was mailed to each subject according to a random assignment.
